Charles Bukowski was considered the champion of the outsiders, the lost, the lonely, and the outcasts of society. His work is still vividly relevant today. Overall, Bukowski wrote about the human condition, something that can be applied to any time period regardless of changes in technology, politics, or societal conflict.
Doors open at 5:45pm (for best seating please arrive early). All attendees have a chance to win Bukowski books, CDs, DVDs, and other prizes.
