Call Allen Ginsberg


I nearly forgot to mention that this is National Poetry Month. To celebrate San Francisco’s literary heritage and to commemorate the Beat Poets, a clever cabal of contemporary hipsters developed the “Call Allen Ginsberg” project. They installed street art pieces around the city featuring a silhouette of the iconic poet and a phone number. If you call the number—and you can call from anywhere in the world—you will hear poems read by local poets. So, give Allen a call at 415-763-6968.
