“Early Beyond Baroque” by Harry Northup

Harry Northup has given me permission to post a link to his recollection of the early days at Beyond Baroque. I can only hope that the person whose appointment as the new poet laureate of Los Angeles will be announced on Thursday, October 9, will take the time to read Harry’s piece and to commit its details to memory. If the new poet laureate is to be an effective representative of the maturation of poetry as an art form in Los Angeles in the past 65 years, then familiarity with personal accounts such as Harry’s is absolutely necessary.

Harry Northup is giving a reading at Beyond Baroque in a week and a half. I wish I could attend, but I will be attending an all-day and into the evening meeting, on Friday the 17th, regarding a summer arts program in Monterey Bay.
