China's First Reading of Howl
It's Allen Ginsberg's birthday on Monday, and so a bunch of people are getting together for a reading of his most famous poem, Howl. It captured the imagination and the frustration of the beat generation and was debated in court for being "obscene" (too many F bombs). This reading will be in Chinese and English and there will be some wine and sausages from Amelia's, plus some screen-printed posters from Idle Beats. No cover to get in.
