Xochi Candeleria, Camille Dungy, and Lee Herrick @ Litcrawl 2009

I was happy to be part of Litcrawl, at the invitation of Camille Dungy to read with Fishouse poets Paul Welch, Charles Flowers, Xochi Candeleria, and Helen Wickes.  It was a packed room at tiny Self Edge on Valencia, amidst the hundreds of poets in the Mission.  Although I couldn’t catch their readings, it was comforting knowing that Barbara Jane Reyes, Ching-In Chen, Maria Teutsch, Matthew Zapruder, and Troy Jollimore were reading in the same neighborhood.  I did get a chance to stop in at 826 Valencia, and I caught Patricia Wakida’s reading from the book she’s working on: a biography of Shig Murao.  Here’s a picture of Xochi, Camille, and me from the reading.

timthumb.phpSaturday, October 17, on the last night of LitQuake, I will be reading at Self Edge (714 Valencia) in San Francisco at 7:15 pm with Paul Welch, Charles Flowers, Xochiquetzal Candeleria, and Helen Wickes for From the Fishouse.  For details about the reading and the mayhem that is Litcrawl, please visit here.  Over a three hour span this Saturday evening, over 300 poets will be reading at over 50 venues in the same area of the city.  Also reading at various times, as far as I can tell: Alice Wu (writer and director of the film Saving Face), Ching-in Chen, Patricia Wakida, Barbara Jane Reyes, Troy Jollimore, and many–  many more.  Hope to see you.

On November 10, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., please join us at The Democracy Center (Harvard Square) in Cambridge, Massachussetts where I will be reading and signing copies of my book.  This reading is generously sponsored by Boston Korean Adoptees (BKA) and organized by the one and only Nate Bae Kupel.  I am excited to visit Boston, as last, and I am looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  I hope to see you.
