Left Coast Writers Poetry: David Hathwell, Author of Muses
Kawika’s Ocean Beach Deli
734 La Playa St, San Francisco, CA 94121
Sunday, June 4th from 5pm-7:15pm
Join a featured LCW poet (this time it’s a musician) at the First Sunday of the Month Happy Hour Poetry series at Kawika’s Ocean Beach Deli. Our featured poet’s reading is followed by an open mic for other poets to share original work, or even just to read favorite poems aloud. Happy Hour starts at 5pm, and after our featured poet reads for 30 minutes, open mic (three minutes per poet) goes until 7:15 pm. Celebrate creativity and poets while supporting a local, community-oriented, and family owned business! Enjoy $1 off your sandwich with the purchase of a glass of wine or bubbly! Up in June is David Hathwell.
David Hathwell‘s poems have appeared in more than a dozen literary magazines, national and international, including Tampa Review, The MacGuffin, Measure, and the online journals Cider Press Review, Driftwood Press, and Angle. A former English teacher, he has degrees in English from Stanford University and Columbia University, as well as an advanced degree in music theory from Queens College of the City University of New York. He is now a piano student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a bass in the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco. (“My musical training, as much as any other influence, has shaped the character of my poetry.”) He lives in San Francisco with Stephen Goldston, his partner of forty years and husband of seven. Muses is his debut collection.
