I'm reading on Thursday!

I'm reading for Persistent Voices, an anthology of poetry by writers who died of AIDS -- I created a new poem using phrases from the work of the 45 poets included -- the event should be exciting, here are the details:

Persistent Voices: Poets reading and performing works by poets lost to AIDS
curated by Kirk Read
Thursday August 19, 2010
Magnet, 4122 18th St. near Castro in San Francisco
8pm

This event was inspired by the anthology "Persistent Voices: Poetry by Writers Lost to AIDS," edited by Philip Clark and David Groff. The book collects a wealth of poetry and captures the era in which it was written. In these poems there is urgency, lyricism, rage, humor and gossip. Co-editor Philip Clark will be joining us and books will be available that night. There will be readings of the poems as well as some brand new pieces of writing inspired by the writers in the anthology.

Featured readers include: Judy Grahn, Kevin Killian on Steve Abbott, Jaime Cortez, Kirk Read, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Thandiwe Thomas, Philip Huang on Paul Monette, Philip Clark
