March 6 Jim Nisbet & Barry Gifford
Jim & Barry were there but,
due to technical difficulties, no open mike recording.
March 13 August Kleinzahler
A fabulous reading and,
due to technical difficulties, no recording whatsoever.
March 20 Eddie Muller
Another fabulous reading. Big ovation for Eddie,
buzz in the cafe & out front on the street for 2 hours afterward,
due to major visitation by San Francisco mystery scensters,
lovely Beckett recitation, accapella Irish song & bodacious poetry from the open mike.
Due to technical difficulties,
no webcast & no recording.
Faith may or may not be the answer.
Death of Robert Creeley

Well, that's it for this year. We at Sweetie's would like to salute and to thank
our 14 featured readers, 116 signers-up for the open mike (19 readers
followed David Meltzer to the microphone on our final night), and some 500 audience members,
as well as the folks at Poets & Writers, Inc., volunteers & staff,
whose numbers add up to community.
By the way, at some point this calendar and asscociated MP3s
will be moved to the ARCHIVES Department.

Good food, good drink, free pool table.
This series was sponsored by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant
