Sixteen Rivers Press Annual Fundraiser

Sixteen Rivers Press is pleased to invite you to our annual fundraiser, to be held on Saturday, November 2, at a beautiful private home in San Rafael. Our reader this year is Camille T. Dungy, author of three collections of poetry (Smith Blue; Suck on the Marrow; and What to Eat, What Drink, and What to Leave for Poison) and editor of three anthologies, including Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry.

camilleLucille Clifton wrote of Dungy’s first book: “She is a brave poet writing true poems, and I salute the music and courage of her work.” Stuart Dischell calls her work “sweet with the richness of life and laced with the bitterness of knowledge.” Dungy’s honors include an American Book Award, two Northern California Book Awards, a California Book Award silver medal, and a fellowship from the NEA. Recently a professor in the Creative Writing Department at San Francisco State University, she is now a professor in the English Department at Colorado State University. For more about this fine poet and a selection of her work, see her website at camilledungy.com.

The event begins with a reception from 7 to 8 p.m., with Champagne and hors d’oeuvres. The reading begins at 8 p.m. Our two spring authors, Barbara Brauer and Gerald Fleming, and our 2012 chapbook award winner, Miriam Bird Greenberg, will each read a poem, and Lynne Knight, co-translator of our fall book I Know (Je sais) will read a short selection from that book, before Dungy’s reading. A selection of Dungy’s work will be available for purchase at the event, along with books from Sixteen Rivers Press authors.

We would love to see you at this festive gathering in honor poetry and Sixteen Rivers Press, a Greater Bay Area collective. Donations are $100 for one person or $150 for two. To reserve a place and receive directions to the fundraiser, please call us at 415-273-1303. You may also pay at the door, or on the Sixteen Rivers Donor webpage
