CANCELED: The Poetry Center's events scheduled for March 12, 13, 19, and April 2, 2020 have been canceled by the university, together with all university-sponsored public programs through April 5, due to concerns involving covid-19.
Additionally, we are canceling all remaining Spring events, scheduled for April 9, 18, 23, 24, and May 7, 8.
We plan to reschedule these programs for Fall 2020.
For the final double-program in The Poetry Center's In Common Writers Series for Spring 2020, we are delighted to host renowned poet and art critic John Yau, on a rare visit from New York City. He'll be joined by poet, translator, and SF State faculty member Andrew Joron, reading and in conversation at The Poetry Center on Thursday May 7; then the following night, Friday May 8, we move across the Bay, for John Yau together with poet/performer and editor of SFMOMA's online magazine Open Space, Claudia La Rocco, reading and in conversation at Pro Arts Gallery & Commons, right downtown (12th Street BART) in Frank Ogawa Plaza. Supported by the Walter & Elise Haas Fund, these events are free and open to the public.
