Let the spirits move you to this musical and spoken word happening in honor of San Francisco Renaissance balladeer Helen Adam.

Helen Adam (1909-1993) was the author of San Francisco's Burning, The Bells of Dis and A Helen Adam Reader, edited by Kristin Prevallet. Her work inspired many poets—notably Jack Spicer and Robert Duncan—to explore the ballad.
