Sat August 15th @4pm
In 1985 on a Saturday night in a Reagan-era aircraft factory where men make parts for nuclear bombers, drugs and alcohol and horseplay descend into racism, violence, and general pandemonium.
Fred Voss, a machinist for 32 years, has had three collections of poetry published by the U.K.'s Bloodaxe Books. He is regularly published in magazines such as Poetry Review, Ambit, Rising, The Shop, Atlanta Review, and Pearl, and has twice been the subject of feature programs about his poetry on National BBC Radio 4. He is one of Long Beach's most respected and revered poets.
