The Hundy

One hundred poets in fifteen days at E.M. Wolfman.


Hey, look at that, The Hundy is in full swing already. Starting on June 18, E.M. Wolfman General Interest Small Bookstore (410 13th St., Oakland) set out to host one hundred poets in fifteen days. That means a poetry reading featuring around five poets every day, each curated by a prominent, or not-that-prominent-yet-but-still-cool, local writer. Readers happen at 7 p.m. every day, with bonus 9 p.m. readings on Fridays and Saturdays. Total poet insanity of the best kind. This is the Hundy’s second year, and last year they actually pulled it off. It’s not merely an arbitrary feat of marathon programming, but a testament to the East Bay’s thriving poetry scene and a reason to celebrate it. Either show up at the right time on a day that you’re free, or be more selective and check out the lineup online.
