First Friday Poetry Night
On the first Friday of each month at 7:00 pm, we feature a local or national poet reading original work (published or not), followed by an open reading. The First Friday Reading has been going on since 1976 when Changing Hands was on 5th St. in Tempe. Readers have included Beckian Fritz Goldberg, Jeanne Clark, Alan Guisinger, Mary "The Bone Mama" McCann, Sally Y, Sheila Murphy, David Chorlton and the poets from The Hayden's Ferry Review, the ASU literary magazine. Since there is sometimes a change in schedule, please check the Event List for exact date each month.
