Lucky Bean Poetry Night
August 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us Monday, August 16th at 6:30 pm for a poetry reading hosted by Lucky Bean Press with featured poet, Tyler Despenza. An open mic will follow. Reserve your seat here!
This month’s featured reader is Tyler Despenza. As a poet and New Orleans native, Ty’s primary influences have been jazz, superstition, and local colloquialisms. She received her B.A. in English from Xavier University of Louisiana in 2017 and now works for a local nonprofit. Her works have surfaced in university literary magazines, some of which she has also been an editor. Though she is proud to be from New Orlean’s 13th ward, Ty now lives on the corner of Flood St. in the Lower 9th Ward with her large black labradors, Parish and DeLille.
