San Francisco Poetry Reading for "A Bird Black As the Sun"

Between now and July, a half-dozen poetry readings are taking place all over California to celebrate "A Bird Black As the Sun: California Poets on Crows & Ravens." The next one is in San Francisco this Wednesday, February 29, 7 pm at Books Inc. Opera Plaza, 601 Van Ness. Tell your friends! This one is not to be missed!

Over 20 poets will read their selections from the anthology, among them Ron Alexander, Rochelle Arellano, Jennifer Arin, Constance Crawford, Patrick Daly, Robert Evans, Paul Fericano, Molly Fisk, Kevin Hearle, Kit Kennedy, Danusha Lameris, Andre Levi, Ellaraine Lockie, Diane Martin, Kathleen McClung, Charlotte Muse, Ruth Nolan, Mary Rudge, Kim Shuck, and Cher Wollard.

A thousand thanks to our amazing host, Connie Post, for putting this reading together. That's Connie on the right in the photo above, with anthology co-editor Enid Osborn. Connie has done more than any other person to promote the anthology in Northern California. Yay Connie!!

This photo, and the one above, were taken at the January 28 reading at Barnes & Noble in San Jose--another hugely successful event. Many of the poets shown here will be reading in San Francisco as well. Back row: Ron Alexander, Rochelle Arellano, Robert Evans, Patrick Daly. Middle row: June Saraceno, Enid Osborn, Connie Post, Charlotte Muse, Ellaraine Lockie, Kathleen McClung. Kneeling in front: Len Anderson, Patrice Vecchione.
