More about the reading
Visions & Affiliations: A California Literary Time Line: Poets & Poetry 1940–2005, by Jack Foley has been praised by Lawrence Ferlinghetti: "Jack Foley is doing great things in articulating the poetic consciousness of San Francisco." This two-volume work is a chronoencyclopedia of over sixty-five years of California poetry beginning with the publication of Kenneth Rexroth's first book of poems. The writing deals with people, ideas, stories, opinions, argumentation, all focused on the incredibly rich, kaleidoscopic scene of poetry in California in the second half of the twentieth century and surging on into the twenty-first. As Foley, himself, says, "If there is any Urgrund in this book, it is the constantly changing, endlessly conflictive fabric of time." Jack and Adelle Foley will introduce the following poets all of whom have work quoted in the time line and will each read briefly: poet Ivan Argüelles, who is also the book's publisher, Pantograph Press; Mary-Marcia Casoly, Run to Tenderness; Lucille Lang Day, The Curvature of Blue, poems; Katherine Hastings, Updraft; Northern California Book Award nominee Andrew Joron, Trance Archive: New and Selected Poems; legendary Beat poet Michael McClure, Of Indigo and Saffron: New and Selected Poems; and Al Young, California Poet Laureate Emeritus.
