Join us for an open mic night featuring spoken word poet Rudy Francisco, author of the debut collection Helium, whose work has defined poetry for a generation of new readers. Rudy will be performing his poetry alongside other poets; anyone is welcome to come and read from their work, as well!
*PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high number of RSVP's, we are now requesting that to secure a seat, please purchase a copy of Helium in-store or online. Rudy will also be signing copies of Helium purchased at Cellar Door Books first, so your purchase will guarantee a seat and that your copy will be signed. RSVP's without proof of purchase are standing-room only. Thank you!
Rudy Francisco was born, raised, and still resides in San Diego, California. At the age of 21, Francisco completed his B.A. in Psychology and decided to continue his education by persuing a M.A. in Organizational Studies. As an artist, Francisco is an amalgamation of social critique, introspection, honesty, and humor.
