Celebrating the Life of Doug Knott

Join us for a celebration of Doug Knott. The former president of Beyond Baroque's Board of Trustees, Doug was a multi-talented poet, performer, and producer of literary events. He was the author of the poetry collection Small Dogs Bark Cartoons, the play The Last of the Knotts, several chapbooks, and was a co-founder of the performance troupe The Carma Bums. He had a law degree from Harvard, a commitment to the counterculture, an incredible array of friends, and a deep history of creating and performing in events at the intersection of poetry, punk, and the art world. We hope you’ll celebrate his life with us.

Food and drinks will be served on Beyond Baroque's patio following the memorial.
