Beat Goes On In Spokane

Beat poetry is alive and well in Spokane. At least it will be at 7 p.m. Sunday when Terry Trueman and three Spokane Falls Community College colleagues perform an event titled “October, The Night Beat Was Born” at the Anaconda Restaurant, S510 Freya.

Commemorating the first public reading of the poem “Howl” by Allen Ginsberg, which took place on Oct. 7, 1955, Sunday’s event will feature the four performers reading in character.

Trueman will read as Ginsberg, Ed Reynolds as Gregory Corso, Terry Steiner as Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Steve Reames as Gary Snyder.

Admission is a $5 donation.
