It's time for the second biennial International Poetry Festival in San Francisco. While I know you're jumping out of your seats in excitement, there is actually some fun stuff in it for kids.
Children’s Poetry Storytime on Saturday July 25 (12-2 p.m.).
Poet/Authors Ambar Past (Mexico), Jorge Argueta (El Salvador), Tony Robles (Philippines) and Cletus Nelson Nwadike (Nigeria and Sweden) will be featured at the Richmond Branch Library (351 9th Avenue) for a story time, reading and book giveaway. Free
Youth Poetry Reading with Writers Corps on Saturday, July 25 (12-2 p.m.).
This is at the Western Addition Branch Library (1550 Scott St.), and moderated by Friends of SFPL’s Anne Wintroub and featuring California Poet Laureate Carol Muske-Dukes.
The poetry festival starts July 23, and is sponsored by the SF Mayor’s Office and Friends of SFPL. The event features 26 poets from 21 countries, speaking at libraries at other venues around the city.
Anyway, there are two specific events, one for kids and one for bit older youths.
