Squaw Valley Community of Writers Poetry Reading Benefit
On Friday, July 18, 2008, at 7:30 p.m., Lucille Clifton, Robert Hass, Sharon Olds, C.D. Wright and Dean Young will read their poetry the Starr King Room at the First Unitarian Universalist Center of San Francisco (1187 Franklin Street at Geary).
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 before and after the reading, and the poets will be available to sign books after the reading.
This will mark the 17th year for this annual benefit event, and every year it is a standing-room-only success. 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 p.m., and seating is general admission. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Premium Seating (An unreserved seat in the first 3 rows): $30
General Admission: $20
Group discounts are available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Don't miss this chance to hear some of the USA's greatest living poets read their work!
