In 2021 the theme of L.A. Poetry Beach Festival was:
This theme is inspired by Kenneth Patchen grafic poem at the September 1961 edition of Liberation. With Get ready to die we honored the 110 th birthday of Kenneth Patchen (December 13, 1911 – January 8, 1972)
At LAPB2021 we selected 8 poets to recite their poems at the Venice Beach Poetry Monument. Due to bad weather (raid and cold) we rented that night a room in Hotel Erwin. At our youtube channel you can find some video’s
You can buy the LAPB2021 anthology ‘Get ready to die’ here.
