Charles Bukowski Tribute Night: Friday, Jan. 2 at Cornelia St. Cafe

Burnt out like Norton? Perfect. Come to Cornelia St. Cafe for the first Son of a Pony reading of 2009, where we’re once again celebrating the life with a tribute reading to Charles Bukowski. Poet Charles Bukowski was truly one of the few and far between: a champion of the outsider, the lost and lonely, the outcasts from society. His work resonates well in the post-holiday drip that we feel each year, especially since his passing in 1994.

At this tribute reading, you are invited to drown your sorrows one last time before the resolutions really kick in, and read your favorite Bukowski poem, or an original poem that was inspired by Bukowski.

We’ll be showing videos of Bukowski, giving away books, photos and other prizes.

Plus a select number of readers including Peter Carlaftes, Angelo Verga, Ryan Buynak and Host Kat Georges will bring Bukowski poems to life in a very special performance right before your bleery eyes. Open reading sign up starts at 5:45. Get there early to get on the list or show up late and we'll find a way to squeeze you in.
