Judy Grahn and Diane Wakoski: October 2, 1974

The Poetry Center presents Judy Grahn and Diane Wakoski, appearing at the San Francisco Museum of Art, each reading from new work on a program of women poets organized by The Poetry Center and introduced by director Kathleen Fraser. Grahn reads from a long prose work in progress, and from the She, Who poems. The latter at the time is noted as being prepared for publication with the Women's Press Collective, which was located in the basement of A Woman’s Place Bookstore, on Broadway in Oakland. Wakoski reads three works in manuscript, a poetic essay followed by two longer poems, from her yet to be published book, Virtuoso Music for Two and Four Hands (Doubleday, 1975).

Note: the original event also included a third poet, Grace Harwood, video for whom is unavailable.
