David Meltzer -- poet, musician, chronicler of the Beat poets, editor of 
anthologies, and author of more than fifty books -- needs our help.

Some of the recipients of these announcements may remember the wonderful 
reading he and Julie Rogers gave two years ago at Mother Foucault's 
Bookstore. We had been trying to get David to Portland for many years.

David's health has been precarious for some time -- with a serious liver 
disease, diabetes, and chronic osteoarthritis -- but his determination 
is seemingly bottomless. He recently had major surgery, and while he's 
recuperating friends have mounted a campaign on /Giveforward/ to raise 
funds to help with his medical expenses.

You can read more about David's life and work, and his situation, and 
contribute to the campaign, here:
