Poetry Readings

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.
