The open mic will start a little earlier than usual, to accommodate the larger crowd, but we still encourage you to come early.The sign up list will be closed at 6:50; first come, first served.
Additionally, there will be prize-packs from Self Serve* for the best poems of the night. Voting details, as with all things American and pseudo-democratic, will be determined at a later date.

We'll also be joined for the evening by poet Dinah Frank who sent the following PR:

The shy exhibitionist Dinah Frank, world famous for her obscurity, will be reading her award winning love story to french filmmaker Jean Cocteau. Titled Dirt Cabaret: A Stainless Steel Love Story, the fiction requires she wear a bodice made from Super 8 Film and she intends to comply. 

Featured reader Lisa Gill plans to bring her alter ego Dinah Frank, a character in one of her short stories, and read odd fiction from a past Nob Hill street performance as well as work from her dissertation.

Free, fun and open to the public For more information, visit Treehouse on Facebook.

Thanks to Lisa Gill & the Treehouse Facebook page for this post.
