Poetry of KNSJ – NOV. 17 – 6:00 – 6:45 pm at The Lyceum
The Lyceum Theater and KNSJ (89.1 FM) announce the news of Artivist (Artist & Activist) Poetry Of KNSJ, a poetry reading by four outstanding San Diego poets: Theresa F, Sonia Gutierrez, Lizzie Wann, and Jim Moreno. The Poetry is a prelude to the play The Oldest Boy and will take place on The Lyceum Theater lobby stage one hour before the play. The Lyceum is located at Westfield Horton Plaza, 79 Horton Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101.
The poets will read original poetry followed by a collage poem where four different poems are read as one poem in an interesting collaboration. The poetry performance will end 15 minutes before the play begins so audience members can comfortably find their seats. According to Jim Moreno, a quote from a Nikki Giovanni poem sums up the creativity of these four poets:
I hope I die warmed by the fire I tried to live.
