Bistro 33 Poetry Series in Davis--new times & John Boe

Looking for a reading/performance tonight? Head to Bistro 33 in Davis...

John Boe’s storytelling prowess has been featured at festivals (including the California Storytelling Festival and Picnic Day), on radio and TV (including ABC’s 20/20), at clubs (often The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley), conferences, conventions, schools, and other venues. He is author of Life Itself: Messiness is Next to Goddessness and Other Essays, and co-author of Your Joke is in the Email: Cyberlaffs from Mousepotatoes. In addition to being a storyteller, Boe is also a poet, painter, and piano player. He serves as the editor of the journal Writing on the Edge, and is an award-winning essayist. He is a lecturer for the University Writing Program UC Davis where he was the first winner of the Excellence in Teaching Award.

The event is free and open to the public, though many of John’s stories will not be suitable for children.

Early arrival is encouraged, for the Bistro 33 banquet room is expected to fill to capacity for Boe’s performance.

Poetry Night at Bistro 33, hosted by Andy Jones and produced by Brad Henderson, occurs on the first Wednesday of every month at 8 P.M. with an open microphone segment at 9 P.M. Come early if you would like to reserve a spot on the Open Mic list. For more information, visit
