Squaw Valley Community of Writers Benefit Poetry Reading - June 19, 2015
On Friday, June 19, 2015 at 7:00 p.m., Forrest Gander, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, J. Michael Martinez, Sharon Olds, and Evie Shockley 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.

This year marks the event's 24th anniversary and its third year in Sacramento. 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.

Books donated by the poets and their publishers will be available for purchase (cash, check, or credit card) before and after the reading. The poets will be available to sign books after the reading.

Doors will open at 6:30 pm, and seating is general admission. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
