Isn’t everything poetry? Readings with Ken Shakin, Robert Stastny, Ida Loggert and many anonymous others

The Curious Fox Book shop on the Flughafenstrasse in Berlin presents regular poetry evenings. Before the break invited poets read their poems, after the break poets in the audience, mostly announced by their first name step up, and cheered by the audience, read their short serious, intimate or hilarious poetry.

Adrian Shephard – Curious Fox Books Poetry Night

Curious Fox is the name of an english bookstore in the Flughafenstrasse of Berlin Neukölln. You will find it in a street filled with thrift stores and pilgrims on their way to Mecca.

You will find it there. To celebrate their one year anniversary they organized a poetry evening. The store was packed….
