Poetry Rare Book Pop-Up

Please join us from 12-1 pm on Thursday 4/28 in the library foyer for a rare book pop-up exhibit of small and fine press poetry books by female poets of the Beat Generation.

The center piece of the pop-up is Lenore Kandel’s The Love Book, which went on trial for obscenity here in San Francisco in 1967, and the associated newspaper clippings from the Chronicle.

There will also be books containing the work of Joanne Kyger, Diane di Prima, and Ruth Weiss on display.

The pop-up has been curated in conjunction with the Ignatian Literary Magazine’s feature on the female writers of the Beat Generation, which in turn inspired the National Poetry Month display in the library foyer.

We look forward to closing out National Poetry Month with a bang. Hope to see you there!
