Join us for a reading with Marcene Gandolfo, author of Angles of Departure. Open mic follows. Teens & adults are invited to share poems in any form or style. A feminist epic by Diane di Prima, LOBA is a visionary epic quest for the reintegration of the feminine, hailed by many as the great female counterpart to Allen Ginsberg's Howl when the first half appeared in 1978. Loba, "she-wolf" in Spanish explores the wilderness at the heart of experience, through the archetype of the wolf goddess, elemental symbol of complete self-acceptance.
Marcene Gandolfo is a poet, writer, editor, and professor. Her debut book, Angles of Departure (Cherry Grove Collections, January 2014), won Foreword Reviews' Silver Award in Poetry. Marcene's poems have been published widely in literary journals, including Poet Lore, DMQ Review, and Bellingham Review. She has taught writing and literature at Sacramento City College and other colleges in northern California. Light refreshments will be served.
