Poetry Center San José and Barnes & Noble @ Eastridge Mall are proud to present Eastridge Open Mic with host Lorenz Dumuk featuring Norm Mattox!

Admission is free. Open mic and feature to follow after.

Norm Mattox is a native Bronx, New Yorker. He has been living on the ‘left’ coast for over thirty years. Norm is a bilingual educator in the San Francisco Unified School District for over 25 years. He is a mentor and math coach for middle school math teachers in the Math Department. Norm has been writing in journals, notebooks, on the backs of envelopes and on color coded, post-it notes for decades. Norm crossed out of his comfort zone, from writing in silence to speaking his peace on the Open Mic, in 2015. His muse is inspired by the dance he does with students in the public education system, by a tribal response to persistent aggressions in today’s society, by family and by love. He, recently, published his first chapbook, Get Home Safe! Poems for Crossing the Community Grid. One of his poems is included in El Tecolote’s Anthology, Poetry in Flight/Poesia en Vuelo.
