Please join us on Saturday, August 10th at 6:30 pm for a special reading by the widely celebrated poets Dorianne Laux and Joseph Millar, in town from North Carolina in support of the International Poetry Library of San Francisco.

Laux and Millar

Laux‘s accolades are many: she’s been selected for Best American Poetry three times, including 2013; she’s been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship; has won the Oregon Book Award; and was shortlisted for the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize and as a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award … amongst others.

Millar has won a Pushcart Prize and was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Montalvo Center for the Arts, and Oregon Literary Arts, and has been published in many outstanding journals.

This is an evening not to miss! (To whet your appetite, watch Laux read a short poem here and Millar here.) Find out more about the IPLSF here.
