Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Andrea Abi-Karam, and Ching-In Chen: December 13, 2019

In celebration of Kelsey Street Press's 45th Anniversary, The Poetry Center, together with Kelsey Street Press and The Green Arcade, presents Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Andrea Abi-Karam, and Ching-In Chen, reading at McRoskey Mattress Co., in San Francisco. Following Patricia Dienstfrey and Rena Rosenwasser, co-founders of the press, recalling its history and several of the authors it has presented, notably Kathleen Fraser and Barbara Guest, Rosenwasser introduces Berssenbrugge. Berssenbrugge reads from NEST (Kelsey Street Press, 1998) and from her forthcoming book A Treatise on Stars (New Directions, 2020). Mg Roberts, of Kelsey Street Press, introduces Abi-Karam, who reads from their book EXTRATRANSMISSION (Kelsey Street Press, 2019). Roberts then introduces Chen, who reads from their book recombinant (Kelsey Street Press, 2017) to close the event. The program was supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
