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.

Wrapping up Spring 2020 with another double-program in The Poetry Center's In Common Writers Series, we are delighted to host renowned poet and art critic John Yau, on a rare visit from New York City. Following his reading and conversation with poet, translator, and SF State faculty member Andrew Joron, at The Poetry Center on Thursday May 7, we move across the Bay on Friday May 8, 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.

Details soon
