Poets Crawleate: Bay Area Poet Laureates Represent!

Come hear six Bay Area poet laureates from the East Bay, Peninsula, South Bay, and San Francisco share their poetry and enchant you with their words. Featuring San Francisco Poet Laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin, Santa Clara County Poet Laureate Tshaka Menelik Imhotep Campbell, San Mateo County Poet Laureate Emerita Aileen Cassinetto, El Cerrito Poet Laureate Emerita Maw Shein Win, and Los Gatos Poet Laureate Jen Siraganian

This event is part of one of the most anticipated literary nights of the year, San Francisco's Lit Crawl: a massive, one-night literary pub crawl throughout the city’s Mission District. Lit Crawl SF brings together 300+ authors and close to 10,000 fans for the world’s largest free pop-up literary event. Started in 2004, Lit Crawl cultivates a unique, resonant brand: smart and silly, worldly and wacky events presented in venues usual (bars, cafes, galleries, and bookstores) and unusual (tattoo parlors, barbershops, and laundromats). Complete schedule is now live!
