San Francisco Poet Laureate emerita Kim Shuck invites writers published in the new anthology, Uncommon Ground: BIPOC Journeys to Creative Activism, edited by Shizue Seigel, to read at SFPL’s monthly poetry reading. Program Location: Latino Room (Lower Level).
Kim Shuck was San Francisco’s seventh Poet Laureate. Her poetry draws on her multiethnic background which includes Polish and Cherokee heritage, and her experiences as a lifelong resident of San Francisco. Her most recent book of poetry, What Unseen Thing Blows Wishes Across My Surface?, a collaboration with visual artist LisaRuth Elliott, was published in 2022. In her term as Poet Laureate, she hosted scores of free poetry and art workshops for all ages at neighborhood libraries and schools and worked closely with San Francisco Public Library and the San Francisco Arts Commission to launch major citywide initiatives to honor Native American Indigenous People’s heritage.
