The Lyceum Theater & KNSJ Announce the Poetry Reading, Artivist Poetry of KNSJ, November 17, 2015, 6:00 P.M. To 6:45 P.M., A Prelude to the Play The Oldest Boy.

San Diego, CAThe Lyceum Theater and KNSJ, 89.1 FM and, announce the news of Artivist (Artist & Activist) Poetry Of KNSJ, a poetry reading by four outstanding San Diego poets:

Theresa F, Sonia Gutierrez, Lizzie Wann, & Jim Moreno on the Lyceum Theater lobby stage one hour before the play, The Oldest Boy.

The Lyceum is located at Westfield Horton Plaza, 79 Horton Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101

The poets will read original poetry followed by a collage poem where four different poems are read as one poem in an interesting collaboration. The poetry performance will end 15 minutesbefore the play The Oldest Child begins so audience members can comfortably find their seats. Perhaps a quote from a Nikki Giovanni poem sums up the creativity of these four poets: “I hope I die warmed by the fire I tried to live.”
