I’m delighted to be part of the Fall 2019 reading series run by the Marin Poetry Center. On Thursday Sept 19th, I’ll be reading, alongside the wonderful Matthew Siegel. This event is free and open to the public. You can get more details here.
The Marin Poetry Center was founded in 1981 by a dedicated group of Northern California poets as a non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture the enjoyment of poetry and the craft of writing throughout the Bay Area.
Matthew Siegel is the author of Blood Work, winner of the Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
