Beat News: April 6 1995

Some announcements:

1. Allen Ginsberg will be reading his poetry at the Knitting Factory in New York for several nights in a row this spring. He will be covering his entire career chronologically, and I believe he will not read any poem more than once during the series. Dates are May 4, 5, 9 and 11, two sets a night.

2. New York University is sponsoring a conference on ‘The Writings of Jack Kerouac’ on June 5-6. Participants include Ginsberg, Ann Charters, David Amram, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ed Sanders, Lee Ranaldo, Diane DiPrima, Gregory Corso and (a new addition to this crowd) Lou Reed.

3. Visit Mystic Fire Video if you’re interested in ordering some rare Beat-related videos. There are several other kinds of videos available here as well, many with mystical, literary or alternative-lifestyle themes.
