Join us for the first annual Poetry World Series, in which two teams of up-and-coming Bay Area poets--Mathew Zapruder, Robin Ekiss, Troy Jollimore, Ada Limon, Dean Rader, and Melissa Stein-- take turns batting up to a poem topic pitched by the audience. Fastballs, curveballs, knuckleballs: these poets won't know what's coming next. A panel of judges including San Francisco author Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) and KQED Forum host Michael Krasny will score each batter's reading, and the winning team takes the series title till next year! Book sale and signing afterwards.
