California’s “wide open” poet turns 90

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

On March 24, Lawrence Ferlinghetti turns 90.  He still claims he never wrote Beat but rather “wide open” poetry, even though most would say he was a key to the 1950’s Beat movement.

As part of his birthday celebration, SCC readers will want to dip into the poet’s work on the third floor of the library at PS3511.E557.
