Lone Glen 30!

March 14, 2021

On Sunday, 14 March at 4 pm PST, the Lone Glen series will feature an afternoon of poetry and activism with Tongo Eisen-Martin, Sara Mumolo, and Jive Poetic. Join us on zoom, where Noah Sanders of The Racket series will DJ a few tunes to open and close the reading! This is the second Lone Glen of the season, and our 30th event of the last nine years. 
Lone Glen is a quarterly reading and performance series dedicated to fostering all writing and art genres within a spirit of collaborative, down-to-earth, and inclusive creative community.  

Launched in December 2011 in an apartment in the Mission District of San Francisco, Lone Glen was later an Oakland basement operation for several years before taking root at the Temescal Art Center in Oakland and The Bindery in San Francisco. Although on hiatus for nearly a year due to pandemic constraints, we are back on track to host several virtual events in 2011.
