SIXTEEN RIVERS PRESS INVITES YOU TO
OUR FALL FUNDRAISER & GARDEN PARTY

Join us at a private home in Berkeley for an afternoon of wine, hors doeuvres, and readings by two acclaimed poets:

ELLEN BASS AND W. S. DI PIERO

Tickets: $25 (Rivulet), $50 (Brook), $75 (Stream), or $100 (Tributary) per person

ELLEN BASS is the author of three books of poetry: Mules of Love, The Human Line, and her most recent, Like a Beggar, from Copper Canyon Press. She coedited the groundbreaking No More Masks! An Anthology of Poems by Women. Her awards include a fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts and a Lambda Literary Award. Her work has been described as piercingly intimate and at once crushing and uplifting. Bass teaches in the MFA program at Pacific University and leads writing workshops here and abroad; she lives in Santa Cruz.

W. S. DI PIERO is the author of six books of poetry and numerous collections of essays; he is also an art critic and a translator of Italian poetry. His books include Chinese Apples: New and Selected Poems, and his latest, TOMBO, from McSweeneys. His poetry is noted for its urban landscapes and gritty realism, but is also inspired by works of art, especially that of Italian masters such as Caravaggio. His awards include a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation and the Lila Wallace Readers Digest Fund. He lives in San Francisco and is on the faculty of the Stegner Poetry Workshop.

SIXTEEN RIVERS PRESS, founded in 1999, is a shared-work, nonprofit poetry collective. The press is named for the sixteen rivers that flow into San Francisco Bay and is dedicated to the publication of fine poetry by Northern California poets.
