We remember poet and friend Tom Raworth, with readings and tributes, at UC Berkeley's Maude Fife Room in Wheeler Hall. Miles Champion, poet and editor of Raworth's As When: A Selection (Carcanet, 2015) will be flying in from New York City, and other poet and artist friends from nearer by and far-flung places will be present, the latter mostly via audio recording or written memories and tributes.

Co-sponsored by The Poetry Center and UC Berkeley Department of English.
