San Francisco, California: Alley Cat Books
Join San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia at Alley Cat Books on October 10th. The event will be held by Litquake, San Francisco's literary festival.
"Alejandro Murguía came to San Francisco from Los Angeles in the early 1970s and never left. His career has been a constant reworking of the themes of language, tradition, poetry, violence, and romantic love in the Latino community. His poems are intense and direct, the economy of their language allowing various first-person narrators to express themselves in gorgeous vernacular. When he was bestowed the title of Poet Laureate of San Francisco this year, one of his first thoughts was, 'Does it come with free parking?'"
Alley Cat Books is located at 3036 24th St.
