By Harriet Staff

City Lights

Did you know that City Lights has a podcast series? Did you know that the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics turns 40 this year? Well, satisfy both ends of your curiosity today at Live! From City Lights. On their July 4th episode, Andrea Rexillus hosts readings from JKS alumni and current instructors. Tune in to hear readings by Juliana Spahr, Cedar Sigo, Eric Baus, Michelle Naka Pierce, and Chris Pusateri. A little about JKS and the event:

Founded in 1974 by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman, as part of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s 100-year experiment, the Jack Kerouac School continues to honor its historical roots while bringing forward new questions that both invigorate and challenge the current dialogue in writing today. This event will celebrate Naropa’s 40th year and will feature readings by JKS faculty and renowned guests who have taught in the Summer Writing Program.
