The Poetics of the Library
SARA WINGATE GRAY
7:00 pm @ the Poetry Center, HUM 512, San Francisco State University, free.
This public lecture and presentation by the Itinerant Poetry Librarian and the Poetry Center’s 2007 Visiting Research Scholar Sara Wingate Gray will concern itself, in her words, “with poetry, taxonomy, ephemerally, digitally, accessibly, auditory, library and other words ending in why?’ Please come and help us decide what a library might be.” The Itinerant Poetry Librarian travels the world with a library of “lost & forgotten poetry,” installing the library and librarian, and recording the sounds and poetry of the people, cities, and countries she meets. She lives wherever her library is.
