Shizue Seigel explores complex intersections of history, culture and spirituality through prose, poetry and visual art. The child of Japanese American incarcerees, she grew up in Baltimore, Occupied Japan, and California farm labor camps and skid-rows. She draws on lived experience as an Army brat, the Haight-Ashbury, Indian ashrams, corporate advertising, HIV prevention and the activist arts community. Through her arts organization Write Now! SF Bay, she supports writers and artists of color through workshops, events and anthologies. Her eight books include five Write Now! anthologies, most recently "Uncommon Ground: BIPOC Journeys to Creative Activism."

Kim Shuck is a series of increasingly silly proteins. Shuck is the 7th Poet Laureate of San Francisco Emerita. Shuck has written or edited something north of 20 books, depending upon the day you read this. She is easily distracted by kittens, unusual beetles, and good chocolate.

$6 all-day parking at St. Mary’s Square Garage.
