    7:15 pmMark Taper Auditorium at the Los Angeles Central Library - 630 W 5th St, Los Angeles, CA 90071

    SOMEHOW I get to be one of seven contemporary California poets celebrating the work of seven immortals! As the library website says, “[We’re] hoping to provide a lens through which to experience these visions of a life lived in the harsh clarity of a Western light.

    Featuring Douglas Kearney reading Charles Bukowski; Victoria Chang reading Diane Di Prima; Brynn Saito reading Adrienne Rich; Kim Dower reading Gertrude Stein; Amy Gerstler reading Czeslaw Milosz; Blas Falconer reading Juan Felipe Herrera, and I get to read the work of Wanda Coleman!!!
