Happy 100th Birthday to Publishing Pioneer Lawrence Ferlinghetti!

Happy Birthday to a San Francisco legend!
This celebration looks like fun! I attended Ferlinghetti's 80th birthday dinner when I worked at City Lights Books. He was a fantastic boss, a very gentle soul and a humble legend.
Happy Birthday Lawrence Ferlinghetti
In honor of Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s 100th birthday we will host a party of the century with a poetry extravaganza on March 17,1 p.m. in the Main Library's Koret Auditorium.
