For the fourth year in a row, Poetry Matters invites the public to Downey to celebrate Lummox’s annual anthology of the best in contemporary poetry. The editor and poet known as Raindog and his crew of poets will be reading at Stay Gallery on Thursday, Nov. 19. Featuring an attractive artwork cover, the 200 plus page Lummox #4 showcases poems, articles and interviews from across the country and around the world.
If you have favorite poets from the small presses, chances are they’re in this book. Open microphone for local poets starts at 7:30 pm, after which Lummox #4 poets, many of them from Downey, will read their poems.
Collectible Lummox-related merchandise will be available for sale.
The event marks the beginning of the fifth year of poetry evenings in Downey for Poetry Matters, curated by Lorine Parks.
Doors open at 7 pm
