Mon, Sept. 13 Poetry Reading by Diane di Prima & Maria Mazziotti Gillan – San Francisco

 Monday, September 13 Poetry Reading by Diane di Prima and Maria Mazziotti Gillan 7pm Bird & Beckett Books And Records, 653 Chenery Street, San Francisco, CA

Monday, Sept. 13, 7:00 pm
“The Poetry of Daily Life”
Maria Mazziotti Gillan comes out from Paterson, New Jersey
to join her long-time friend and colleague, Diane di Prima in an exchange of poems.
Di Prima is San Francisco’s Poet Laureate, and a long-time supporter of the store.

We’re pleased to welcome her back to the Bird & Beckett stage in her “official” capacity.

And more importantly, we’re pleased to be the venue for her reading and dialog with Gillan. Maria and Diane have read together at Bird & Beckett twice in past years, when Maria has made the trip out west for the Petaluma Poetry Walk.

The two friends share an Italian-American heritage and long lives in poetry. Born and raised in Paterson, Maria founded and directs the Pasaic County Community College Poetry Center.

Guernica editions has just published her an edition of her work entitled What We Pass On: Collected Poems 1980-2009. Visit this website for info on Maria’s book:
