Poets Moos (Oakland Poems), Saito (The Palace of Contemplating Departure), and Razor (Better Than a Gun in a Knife Fight) share the stage with Bay Area novelists for the monthly Lyrics and Dirges series.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
