Berkeley Verses @North

In celebration of National Poetry Month, local poets Susan Cohen and Meryl Natchez present a look at Berkeley’s poetic legacy by celebrating some of its most iconic voices! Come hear readings of poems by Chana Bloch, Bob Hass, Louise Glück, Allen Ginsberg, and other luminaries who have called Berkeley home! See why our city could truly be called the Paris of America.

 

Author Robin Sloan @North

Author Robin Sloan comes to the North Branch Book Club to answer our questions about his first novel Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, already a modern classic. The book is a comic fantasy about literary obsession and the 21st Century tension between paper and pixels.  It is a book to savor and this is a conversation that you won’t want to miss!  Copies available to borrow at North Branch.
