Happy 100th Birthday, Ferlinghetti

from your friends at FOG. We sang some songs, we read your poems, we cut your cake and drank to you.

Anne read “The Artist,” and Peter read from “Little Boy” and also recited “Baseball Canto.”  There was a great reading of “I Am Waiting.”

All in all–including the cake and Prosecco–it was a magical event. Enough so that we’ve decided to host a yearly LF celebration.
