One month from now, from Fri., Aug. 5 through Tues. Aug. 9, we’ll be celebrating Boog’s 20th anniversary by putting on the fifth annual Welcome to Boog City poetry and music festival. It will feature 67 poets, 10 musical acts, and 8 plays over the five days.
The poetry readings are curated by Jim Behrle, Joanna Fuhrman, and me. The music is booked by Brian Speaker. Thanks to Jim, Joanna, and Brian for helping make this festival happen.
