Poetry Center Reading Named Among Top Bay Area Arts Events This Weekend

Thursday, September 28, 2017

KALW-FM (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Camille T. Dungy is the author of four collections of poetry, most recently Trophic Cascade, a single poem that’s a survival story about a mother, a daughter, and a blue whale. Javier Zamora’s new poetry collection, Unaccompanied, was just released, about his journey crossing the border into the U.S. from El Salvador. The reading is free at 7pm and is at The Poetry Center at San Francisco State University.

“It’s a great chance to see a really established poet and a young and up-and-coming poet talk about issues or race and aesthetic practice,” says Dean Rader, poet and professor at University of San Francisco.
