Tandem is a book born from a crazy idea: what if we took a poetry slam and anthologized it? What if we crafted our anthology in the true spirit of poetry slam, and let the audience at our shows decide which poems they’d like to read over and over again? After a year of Lit Slam shows in the Mission District of San Francisco, we’ve created a book that is uniquely San Francisco, with a collection of top-tier authors to rival any spoken word anthology anywhere. This is your book, San Francisco, and Bicycle Comics is pleased to present some of the best-loved poets and performers in the country, appearing together, in Tandem.
Live in the area? Come to our book release party this Monday, November 19, at 21st and Valencia Streets, San Francisco, CA.
Don’t live in the area? Buy a copy for the poetry-lover in your life.
Bicycle prides itself on publishing the best new poetry out there. We are thrilled to be partnered with the Lit Slam in this endeavor, and we look forward to many more years of Tandem.
