HAROLD NORSE - BEAT POET - CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS

http://haroldnorse.com/

July 6, 2016 will mark the hundredth anniversary of the birth of master American poet Harold Norse. Known for his association with Beat literature and gay liberation, Norse’s work retains its pertinence in today’s fractured world of politics and despair. This has been reflected by increased attention to Norse’s legacy from The New York Times to the International Times.

Beginning on Harold’s actual 100th birthday, July 6, there will be two discussion panels in San Francisco co-sponsored by The Mechanics’ Institute and The Beat Museum.

These will be followed by a return to Harold’s old stomping grounds of Venice Beach at Beyond Baroque. Each of these events will feature a short performance of Harold’s poetry by Los Angeles based multi-talented artist Jason Jenn who has previously performed works about gay poets James Broughton and C.P. Cavafy.

Wednesday, July 6 from 7-9 PM at the Mechanics’ Institute

  • Kevin Killian – Poet, Author and friend of Norse
  • Regina Marler – Author of Queer Beats
  • Todd Swindell – Editor of Norse Selected Poems

Saturday, July 9 from 7-9 PM at The Beat Museum

  • George Scrivani – Translator and friend of Norse
  • Jim Nawrocki – Poet and friend of Norse
  • Tate Swindell – Founder of Unrequited Records

Saturday, July 23 from 4-6 PM at Beyond Baroque

  • Tom Livingston – Author and friend of Norse
  • Michael C Ford – L.A. Poet and Performer
  • S.A. Griffin – L.A. Poet and Actor

Check back in the coming weeks for detailed information about the events and the authors who will be participating. Also keep on the lookout for a Centennial fundraiser featuring bundles of rare Harold Norse books for sale.

Happy Hundredth Birthday Harold Norse!

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

BEHOLD THE BRIDEGROOMS REVISITED 2014

Was a beautiful success! Thanks to all who made it possible. Such a pleasure to bring to the stage the wondrous words of James Broughton inspired by the love of Joel Singer. The two are a great testament to the universal power of queer/gay love for all time!
