Did you know that Ferlinghetti has his very own bookstore/publishing house/hangout spot in San Francisco? It's awesome. And you can trust Shmoop—we've been there countless times. After all, it's practically in our backyard.

Did you know Ferlinghetti used to wear funny costumes sometimes when reading his work? Maybe he still does. We'll have to go to a reading to check him out. (Source.)
