Summer of Love: Beat to Punk

posted in Poet's Hub on 9 January, 2018

From Beat to Punk is part of Poetry d'Amour's "Summer of Love" in conjunction with WA Poets Inc.

Before the hippies and counterculture of the Sixties, the members of the Beat Generation were radically diverse and tolerant. They encompassed all races, genders, religions, classes and sexual preferences. Hear about the poets who defined this generation and join us in a discussion about their influence beyond 1968 and the Summer of Love.

Join Professor of English and Cultural Studies; Dennis Haskell, WA Poets Inc committee member and poetry slammer; Maggie Van Putten, and minimalist anarchist poet Mar Bucknell for a lively discussion of this iconic time in the history of poetry.
