    DIANE DI PRIMA: AN EVENING OF READING & CONVERSATION    
   
    
October 15, Friday, 6:00pm, Martin E. Segal Theatre
Join the iconic poet and activist Diane di Prima for a rare New York City appearance. After her reading, Graduate Center Professor Ammiel Alcalay will engage her in a conversation about her work and life. Over the span of her remarkable career, di Prima has published 43 books of poetry and prose and, as per Allen Ginsberg, “broke barriers of race-class identity and delivered a major body of verse brilliant in its particularity.” She is presently the Poet Laureate of San Francisco. A two-volume Lost & Found <http://www.centerforthehumanitiesgc.org/lostandfound>  chapbook selection of her lectures on poets H.D. and Robert Duncan will be available for purchase on the night of the event.

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: http://old.pccc.edu/poetry/Mariapoem.htm
