Rebecca Foust, outgoing poet laureate of Marin County will host this event, welcoming the new poet laureate and honoring previous poets laureate. The evening will feature brief readings by all.
Rebecca’s books include Paradise Drive (Press 53 Award), reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement and The San Francisco Chronicle, and the Georgia, Harvard, and Hudson Reviews. The Unexploded Ordnance Bin won the 2018 Swan Scythe chapbook prize and is forthcoming in 2019. Recognitions include the Cavafy and James Hearst Poetry Prizes, the Lascaux and American Literary Review Fiction Prizes, and fellowships from Hedgebrook, MacDowell, and Sewanee. Passionate about literature for everyone, not just the educated elite, and about using it to further social justice, Foust is happy to be able to promote these goals as Marin Poet Laureate and Poetry Editor for the online magazine, Women’s Voices for Change.
