This event is also a companion piece to the Conversations with Poets video program sponsored by the library to spotlight the city’s vibrant poetry scene.

Poetry of Resilience: From Haiku to Free Verse —The authors have been invited to perform poems that speak about their lives and the current historical moment of deep national reflection, ranging from social/political discord to a deadly pandemic which locked us down and isolated us from each other. Featured poets include: Ying Wu, Viet Mai, Ant Black, Karla Cordero, Sharon Elise, Rudy Francisco, Olga Garcia, Michael Klam, Katie Manning, Robt O’Sullivan Schleith, Ron Salisbury, Gill Sotu, Jeff Walt, Ted Washington, and the mother-daughter group Chieko Sato and Kai Sakura Pellici.
