National Poetry Month

  

  • Description
    Phillis Levin, Professor of English and Poet-in-Residence, Hofstra University; Author, Mr. Memory & Other Poems Paul Gupta, Cybersecurity and IP Litigation Attorney; Author, Holding Lady Liberty’s Hand, HeadCount's Voter Registration Poem Monday Night Philosophy celebrates National Poetry Month (in partial atonement for a few harsh words about poetry in Plato's Republic) by welcoming national award-winning poet Phillis Levin to San Francisco. Since its inauguration in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets, National Poetry Month has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with poets, publishers, booksellers, libraries and schools celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture. Join Levin for a deep dive into the pleasures of poetry as she reads from her own work. We will hear from local poet Paul Gupta as well, and then from all of you. Instead of the usual Q&A, audience members can either ask the poets a question or read one of their own poems. Given our time constraints, if you are an epic poet, remember that brevity is the soul of wit. Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Toni Rembe Rock Auditorium, San Francisco Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. book signing MLF: Humanities Program organizer: George Hammond Visit for more info. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/national-poetry-month-tickets-82905748325
