Squaw Valley Community of Writers Poetry Reading Benefit 2011
On Friday, July 15, 2011, at 7:00 p.m., Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Cathy Park Hong, Major Jackson, and Sharon Olds will read their poetry in Setzer Auditorium of the Crocker Museum in Sacramento. (216 "O" Street). This benefit reading will raise money for the Poetry Scholarship Fund at the Squaw Valley Community of Writers.
Books donated by the poets and their publishers will be available for purchase (cash or check only) before and after the reading, and the poets will be available to sign books after the reading.
This year marks the event's 20th anniversary as well as its Sacramento debut. All proceeds will benefit the Poetry Workshop Scholarship Fund, enabling talented writers to attend the week-long poetry writing workshop held each year in Squaw Valley, California. It is the goal of this program to support both established and emerging writers of talent who would benefit from working with their peers at the Poetry Week at Squaw Valley.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm, and seating is general admission. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
