Zoomed Poetry Release Reading – Kim Shuck hosts!
Essential Truths,
the new anthology from
editor Shizue Seigel

SF Poet Laureate Emerita Kim Shuck hosts the Bird & Beckett Poets!Zoom

Tonight, Monday, July 26:  A zoomed poetry release reading for Essential Truths: The Bay Area in Color – the new anthology from poet/writer/editor Shizue Seigel.

“It’s about standing strong in the Fillmore and Japantown. What is valuable about the old inner-city communities that are being erased by gentrification? Not only in the buildings, but in the nature of how people interacted with each other as a village where everybody had a place.” Read more at this link. 

An open mic will follow where you can share one poem of a length that supports everyone having time to read.
