If you know anything about the beat generation scene for which San Francisco was a paramount backdrop, you know that Gary Snyder is a consummate legend in such circles. Snyder, a Pulitzer Prize winner for poetry, is one of only five writers who read at the legendary debut of Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl.” He is known for his many volumes of thought-provoking poetry which explores nature, spirituality, nativeĀ  culture, and so much more.

What better place to see Snyder than at ground zero for beat culture, City Lights Bookstore (who has published nine volumes of Snyder’s writing) in San Francisco. Snyder will be reading on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 at 7:00 PM at City Lights. The event is free, so be sure to get there early as it is likely to fill up fast. This is an opportunity to see a real legend of poetry and beat generation culture, at no cost, and not one to be missed if you appreciate the written word and live in the Bay Area.
