Last year Fresno held our first LitHop, launched by our city's Poet Laureate, Lee Herrick. This Saturday, April 29, he launches the second, with multiple venues and authors. See the times and places here.
Note that the stars by the descriptions show that the event has been designated: SUITABLE FOR ALL-AGES (DETERMINED BY READING ORGANIZERS).
Here's the one I most want to go to.
Ghost Songs & Border Crossings (the star didn't copy, but there is one for this event)
3:00 p.m. | Mia Cuppa Caffè | feat. Tim Z. Hernandez, Mas Masumoto, Nikiko Masumoto, Kerry Klein
“Ghost Songs and Border Crossings” will lift up stories of the Central Valley from recently published works. Each of the themes of the title will be woven throughout three movements as the contributors present their work through interdisciplinary storytelling. Across different identities and places, the stories share in the spirit of longing for healing and the power of memory. The audience will be invited to experience the written word through sounds of memory, touch, and ritual.
Of course, there's also this: HEADLINE FEATURE EVENT: GARY SOTO at 7:00 p.m. at Fresno City College, in the Old Administration Building Auditorium.
Take a look at the events offered this Saturday. This is a small selection of the authors we have here in the Valley - what calls to you?
