Tonight, Thursday Feb 27: Celebration and book launch for THE COLLECTED POETRY & PROSE OF LAWRENCE FIXEL, by the late San Francisco poet, edited and with an introduction by GERALD FLEMING. Also appearing and presenting Lawrence Fixel’s work at this event will be poets JACK MARSHALL, EDWARD MYCUE, JO-ANNE ROSEN, and poet-painter PATTI TRIMBLE, painter STEPHANIE SANCHEZ, photographer MARK CITRET, psychotherapist ROBERT CANTOR, and teacher WENDY BERKELMAN.

Michael Heller says. “Lawrence Fixel was one of our most beautiful and original writers.…In a world of dogmas, false certainties and oppressive realities, he was an angel of Evanescence itself, fluid, ungraspable, seeking as he wrote ‘to find in that which passes, that which does not pass.’”

GERALD FLEMING is a poet and editor; he’s published four books of poems, most recently One, edited and published the literary magazine Barnabe Mountain Review, and is currently editing the limited–edition vitreous magazine One (More) Glass.
