16 Hours of Pure Poetry

Last year, Small Press Traffic hosted a 12-hour marathon reading that included more than 70 authors of every imaginable kind of poetics, both as a way to kick off the summer and to raise some funds. The event, which has an all you can eat BBQ and all the beer you can drink option, was so successful they've decided to do it again. In fact, they've extended Endless Summer to a two-day affair, with 12 hours at the Public School in Oakland on Saturday and four hours the following day in the garden of a private home in North Berkeley (email info@smallpresstraffic.org for more info). In addition to the more than 75 local poets who've already signed up to read, SPT has also invited poets from other cities (including Portland, Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, Philadelphia, and New York) to record short readings that will be played throughout the events.
