Poetry Tuesdays at the Library | North Beach

Every Tuesday

Join in every Tuesday evening in the historic literary epicenter of San Francisco to hear poets from near and far read their work.

Tuesdays at North Beach is a highly-respected weekly poetry series celebrating internationally acclaimed poets and showcasing local talent. Past guests have included Jonathan Richman, David Meltzer, Diane di Prima, California Poet Laureate Al Young and freshly-discovered poets from their sister program, Poets 11.  The series is curated by Friends’ Resident Poet Jack Hirschman. 

Each Tuesday evening features free poetry readings and a sense of literary community.
