Funny Valentine: February 9 at 8pm at Beyond Baroque in Venice

Eve Brandstein has a 30-year history of bringing leading actors, writers and poets together to create exceptional spoken word events.

As a major studio & network executive, Norman Lear's casting director & co-producer, a professional director, working writer, perpetual poet & fine artist, Eve launched her Poetry in Motion Literary Salon in 1998, at Helena's in Hollywood.

Since then she has presented original work from some of the entertainment industry's most remarkable talents both before and after they became well known, including Alec Baldwin, Steve Baldwin, Drew Barrymore, John Barrymore, Justine Bateman, Anne Beatts, Roxanne Beckford, Ed Begley Jr. and Yvonne de la Vega.

Poetry in Motion has long been known as a warm "well lighted place" for creative minds at every stage of their artistic and professional development.

Scheduled to appear at Funny Valentine:

Rick Overton
Julie Brown
Brendan Constantine
Anne Beatts
Jen Lynch
John Tottenham
Susan Hayden
Dylan Brody
Adrian Cunningham
Eric Schwartz

Attend this event to hear great spoken word performances, meet the speakers and one another, share wine and snacks, and check out the Beyond Baroque Bookstore which contains many thousands of rare and hard to find works from leading Los Angeles Writers new and old.

Poetry in Motion always sells out and this time we’re scheduled for 8pm on a Saturday night. By buying a ticket rather than showing up at the door without one you’ll not only save $5, you’ll be sure of a good seat in the theater which may be standing room only.

Its best to arrive a bit early because we do tend to start on time. You'll find parking easy in the lots and streets behind and around Beyond Baroque.

If you have questions about the event, or encounter any difficulty sending us payment, please email us. We look forward to hearing from you.

      We tell you who the readers are, but what they decide to read (which is usually something they've written) only Eve knows until they come.
