Litquake: National Poetry Month
April 13, 2019
Litquake presents an evening of poetry during National Poetry Month.
Hosted by the inimitable D.A. Powell, the National Poetry Month celebration will feature poets Paola Capó-García, Marcelo Hernandez Castillo, Henri Cole, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman and Barbara Jane Reyes. You don’t want to miss this.
Whether it’s poets reciting in a cathedral, authors discussing science versus religion in a library, or novelists reading in a beekeeping supply store, the goal remains the same: whet a broad range of literary appetites, present the literary fare in a variety of traditional and unlikely venues, and make it vivid, real and entertaining. Now grown to the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast, Litquake continues its mission as a ten-day literary spectacle for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings.
