Squaw Valley Community of Writers Poetry Reading Benefit
On Friday, July 17, 2009, at 7:30 p.m., Cornelius Eady, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Galway Kinnell, Sharon Olds, and Evie Shockley will read their poetry in The Nave at Grace Cathedral (1100 California 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 before and after the reading, and the poets will be available to sign books after the reading.
This will mark the 18th 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 pm, 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 or call 877-537-8073 for details.
