Working on my talk for the Aggression panel at SPT coming up on May 31st has caused me to think about Jerry Estrin. Today is his birthday. He would have been 61.

My talk is called "Outlaws, Lone Wolves and Made Poets: Bay Area Poetics from the Seventies to the Present" but already has an alternate title -- which will probably change -- and seems so far to be mostly autobiography. I will be posting images and possibly documents here relating to the talk.

The conference, organized by Stephanie Young, Chris Chen and Cynthia Sailers, has several other panels with a stellar line-up of folks and should be really interesting!

Meanwhile, here is Jerry Estrin, who died in 1993, in the early 80s and here also are both of us from around the same time.
