Diane di Prima Reading and Birthday

Bird & Beckett Bookstore

Influential poet and activist Diane di Prima celebrates her 85th birthday with a not-to-be-missed reading. Often considered a bridge between the Beat generation and the hippies who followed--she famously worked with both Amiri Baraka and Timothy Leary--di Prima got involved with the Beats in Manhattan in her 20s before moving to San Francisco, where she would later become the city's Poet Laureate.
