Linda Noel is a former poet laureate for Ukiah and has a long time association with California Poets in the Schools . The most recent place to read her work in print is in the anthology, Red Indian Road West.
Clara Hsu practices the art of multi-dimensional being: mother, musician,
purveyor of Clarion Music Center (1982-2005), traveler, translator and poet.
Sharon Coleman‘s a fifth-generation Northern Californian with a penchant for learning languages and their entangled word roots. She co-curates the reading series Lyrics & Dirges and co-directs the Berkeley Poetry Festival.
A Note From Your Host, Kim Shuck: This month the Gears are some legends and some favorites. The only struggle with having Linda come to San Francisco is moving the conversation from my living room to the bookstore for the reading. When Clara and I first met she gave me the great pleasure of hearing Polish spoken at a poetry venue, a language I miss from my childhood with Polish grandparents. Sharon is a fellow traveler and good company. All three are phenomenal at poeming. Once again, Ed Dang joins in on guitar. Bring a friend and a poem. There will be an open mic after the reading.
