Joanne Kyger celebrating the release of About Now: Collected Poems, published by the National Poetry Foundation
For decades, Joanne Kyger has played a crucial role in California’s poetry scene. Her poetry has been influenced by her studies in Zen Buddhism and her connection to the poets of Black Mountain, the San Francisco Renaissance, and the Beat Generation. Her latest collection, About Now: Collected Poems, forthcoming from National Poetry Foundation, promises to be a definitive collection, highlighting an excellent sampling of her work. She frequently teaches at New College and the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics.
