San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck to Read at City College of San Francisco
On Thursday April 19th City College of San Francisco’s Visiting Writing Series will host a reading and discussion with Cherokee poet Kim Shuck, current Poet Laureate of San Francisco.
Shuck’s poems blend the fluidity of time and nature with scenes of modern life and urban living. Her deep roots in—and strong affection for—San Francisco give her poems vivid imagery and a quiet, yet incontestable energy. Her publications include: Rabbit Stories, a work of fiction, two collections of poems, Smuggling Cherokee, Clouds Running In and chapbook Sidewalk Ndn. Kim Shuck is also an acclaimed artisan and educator specializing in Native American themes.
The reading will be held in the lower level of the Student Union in the City Café from 2:00-4:00 at City College of San Francisco’s main campus. City College is easily accessible by BART and numerous bus lines. Light beverages will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
This event is proudly sponsored by the City College of San Francisco’s English Department, Creative Writing Program and CCSF Concert and Lecture Series.
