Lantern Review Reads at American Bookbinders tonight

Join us tonight at a reading at the American Bookbinders Museum! I will be presenting new and old work, along with poets Barbara Jane Reyes, Brynn Saito, Candy Shue, Debbie Yee, and Jason Bayani. We have all been past contributors to Lantern Review, an amazing online journal of Asian American poetry and art, which is back after a two-year hiatus. LR has asked us to read work that explores themes of printing, thread/stitching, paper, community, and the Bay Area itself. What a glad opportunity to celebrate National Poetry Month!

(As D.A. Powell tweets:
"one month is simply not enough
for all the poetry you'll need
to get you through this year")

A shout-out to Iris Law and Mia Malhotra whose labor of love (and so much love!) this is. The care and generosity they bring to every aspect of the journal and blog and associated events are obvious.
There will be a follow-up Third Thursday event on April 21 that I will have to miss due to a prior commitment.

I hope to see some of you there. Please note that admission is $5 for adults, $2.50 for students, with children under ten admitted free. The museum assures that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
