Happy Belated Birthday to Lawrence Ferlinghetti!
On March 24th, 2009, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, co-founder and co-owner of City Lights Booksellers and Publishers in San Francisco, and one of this country's most beloved poets, will celebrate his 90th birthday.
For those of you wondering, "Where have I heard his name before?" Ferlinghetti's City Lights Publishers published Allen Ginsberg's Howl in 1956, giving rise to the Beat movement. At least the public part of the Beat movement.
Happy Belated Birthday!!
