Life Support: Two More April Literary Events in Sacramento and Beyond

Oops, missed these:

8th

The Write! Look! Listen! Reading Series
UC Merced, Kolligan Library
5200 N Lake Road
Merced, CA


Barbara Jane Reyes is the author of Gravities of Center from Arkipelago Books, Poeta en San Francisco from Tinfish Press, and Diwata, forthcoming from BOA Editions. James Logenbach says, "If William Blake were alive and well and sitting on a eucalyptus branch in the hills above the bay, this is the poetry he would aspire to write."

19th

Traci Gourdine & Quinton Duval
1114 21st Street
Sacramento, CA

Traci Gourdine has taught creative writing to children, college students, and prison inmates. Her work has been featured in ZYZZYVA, Calliope, and the Poems-For-All chaplet series. She is the editor of Night is Gone, Day is Still Coming, an anthology of work by young American Indian writers.

Quinton Duval is the author of Joe's Rain from Cedar House Books, Guerrilla Letters from Quarterly West Press, and Dinner Music from Lost Roads. Dennis Schmitz says, "The poems are buoyant and smart, full of feeling, suddenly deep---I think they are marvelous in every way."
