Ukiah Library LOBA Reading Series Featuring Elise Ficarra!
Open Mic Follows
Saturday, February 2nd at 3 pmJoin us for a poetry reading with San Francisco poet, Elise Ficarra! Open mic follows. Teens & adults are invited to share poems in any form or style.
Elise Ficarra grew up in Northern California and resides in San Francisco. She is associate director of The Poetry Center at San Francisco State University and teaches writing and critical thinking at Chabot College. She has published variously in online and print magazines including: 26, Dusie, Eleven Eleven, 14 Hills, Minor American, Octopus, Open Space SF MOMA, as well as Hinge, A BOAS anthology of eight experimental women writers. Swelter, her volume of poetry, was selected as winner of the Michael Rubin Book Award by Brian Henry, who says of her work "exploratory in form yet ultimately grounded in, and devoted to, every day experience, Swelter seeks to rescue the lyric during the latest war's assault on our senses." And, from Benjamin Hollander, "Here, then, is a poetry of possibility and fact - - no - - of possibility as fact."
Light refreshments will be served. For more information – please contact Melissa at the Ukiah Library: 234-2862 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A feminist epic by Diane di Prima, LOBA is a visionary epic quest for the reintegration of the feminine, hailed by many as the great female counterpart to Allen Ginsberg's Howl when the first half appeared in 1978. Loba, "she-wolf" in Spanish explores the wilderness at the heart of experience, through the archetype of the wolf goddess, elemental symbol of complete self-acceptance.
