Back in April, Litquake celebrated National Poetry Month by hosting a group of esteemed poets at one of San Francisco’s famous landmarks. This event was hosted by D.A. Powell, whose honors include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation, and featured incredible poets like Robert Hass, former Poet Laureate of the United States and winner of a Pulitzer prize; Brenda Hillman, Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets; Henri Cole, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry; Barbara Jane Reyes; Paola Capo-Garcia; and Marcello Hernandez Castillo. Our newest Lit Cast Episode features readings from these fantastic poets on a very special occasion that brought the power of poetry into the historic walls of Grace Cathedral.
Litquake's 20th anniversary festival will take place October 10-19, 2019. For all the latest updates, follow us @litquake on Facebook and Twitter!
This event was recorded live at Grace Cathedral on April 13th, 2019.
