Ferlinghetti Day


Today is Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s 90th birthday.  Your instructions are to find time today to read at least one poem from A Coney Island of the Mind or one of his other books, and maybe even order a book from City Lights, the San Francisco bookstore he co-founded. Or download this podcast of Ferlinghetti reading from his work.  

Meanwhile, Nick can bring you up to speed on birthday plans for another major artist who’s about to celebrate the big nine-oh.
