Cedar Sigo is a San Francisco poet and the author of the full-length collections Stranger in Town and Selected Writings, as well as numerous chapbooks. He was raised on the Suquamish reservation near Seattle, Washington, and studied at Naropa with poets Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Alice Notley, and Joanne Kyger, among others. Sigo’s poetry draws on personal experience and a host of cultural material, which is then culled into sculpted lyrical collages. In the past decade, Sigo has collaborated with many visual artists and writers. A reception will follow.

Doors open 30 minutes before program start time; program will last approximately one hour.

    Slang, “Through the Words of Miss Brooks,” 2017.
    Current Exhibition
    Jun 16, 2017 – Aug 25, 2017

    This exhibition showcases highlights from the literary archives of Gwendolyn E. Brooks (1917–2000), Illinois Poet Laureate and the first black winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Brooks’s papers include youthful poetry and prose, scrapbooks of pieces she published as a young woman, extensive correspondence with a significant roster of other writers, and manuscript drafts and proofs, especially after she left mainstream publishing to produce her works with black-owned presses.
