About the Event
A veteran teacher of writing, Andrena employs European and Asian forms of the villanelle, sonnet, pantoum, haibun, zuihitsu. Susan Cohen calls the collection “dynamic in the way musicians use that word, artful in its mood shifts—loud in anger at what women are given to endure and quiet in appreciation of the pleasures they can find.”
Former SF Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman called her “an activist poet whose works open up paths of struggle, celebration, revolutionary victories and a great American poet.” Mary Mackey lauds her poems as “tough, smart, beautifully crafted.” Born Under the Influence is Andrena's fourth full length book of poetry. It is available for purchase at the event ($20).
Also appearing is Julia Carrasquero, guitarist, who will provide music for the event.
You're invited to participate in the open mic before Andrena's presentation.
Face mask is optional for this event. Thank you.
