John Boe Performs on March 3rd

University Writing Program professor John Boe is a popular personality amongst his students, and a fan favorite at Poetry Night. On Wednesday, March 3 he returns to Bistro 33 to regale a packed audience with his poetry, music, and original stories.

John Boe’s storytelling prowess has been featured at festivals (including the California Storytelling Festival and Picnic Day), on radio and TV (including ABC’s 20/20), at clubs (often The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley), conferences, conventions, schools, and other venues. He is author of Life Itself: Messiness is Next to Goddessness and Other Essays, and co-author of Your Joke is in the Email: Cyberlaffs from Mousepotatoes. In addition to being a storyteller, Boe is also a poet, painter, and piano player. He serves as the editor of the journal Writing on the Edge, and is an award-winning essayist. He is a lecturer for the University Writing Program UC Davis where he was the first winner of the Excellence in Teaching Award.

The event is free and open to the public, though many stories may not be suitable for children. Early arrival is encouraged, for the Bistro 33 banquet room is expected to fill to capacity for Boe’s performance.

Poetry Night at Bistro 33, hosted by Andy Jones and produced by Brad Henderson, occurs on the first Wednesday of every month at 8 P.M. with an open microphone segment at 9 P.M. For more information, visit
