Corners of the Mouth

 

Corners of the Mouth was founded in 1984 by Karl Kempton and Kevin Patrick Sullivan. Karl came up with the name Corners of the Mouth after consulting the I CHING. Karl found the 27 th hexagram corners of the mouth which talks about the mouth as not only a place to nourish the body but a place to nourish the community the body lives in with breath/words. How perfect for a poetry reading series. Karl left after the second year and eventually Kevin changed Corners from a local's only series to a series that features some of California's best poets local or not. For over fifteen years the format has been to feature an out of town poet  with a local poet  - open reading to follow.

Corners of the Mouth is a monthly reading series of featured and open poetry readings held on the third Sunday of the month at Linnaea's Cafe since 1984. Linnaea's Cafe is located at 1110 Garden Street in San Luis Obispo, Ca. Readings start at 7:00 pm. This is a FREE event. For further information please email Kevin at kpsslopoet@charter.net or call (805) 547-1318.
