Hollywood Institute of Poetics presents DANNY BAKER plus open reading
Tuesday, December 4 – 9:00 pm
Cobalt Cafe, 22047 Sherman Way (Just west of Topanga Cyn.), Canoga Park, CA

Danny Baker, a runaway at 14 from the facade of a gilded house in the hills above Los Angeles, has seen life from the gutters to the towers. A high-school dropout, he landed on Wall St. at 20 in a move that only served to add to the dissonance of a rebel mind constantly searching for a youth never experienced. Danny explores his conflict in dichotomous writes of both unflinching, sometimes brutal intensity and honest empathy for the human condition. His first book, FRACTURED, edited by A. Razor as the debut effort of Punk Hostage Press was released in April, 2012. Additionally, Danny was included in a chap, The Musophobist, with three other poets, published by Unadorned Press. His work has been featured in multiple issues of both Paraphilia Magazine and The Edgar Allan Poet Library. Additionally, his efforts can be found in The Examiner, The Nervous Breakdown, The Nexxuss & Deep Tissue 16. He has had several well received readings and will be featured more regularly since moving back from Hawaii. Danny, now 43, is working on several writing projects.
