Amarnath Ravva and giovanni singleton: December 4, 2014

The Poetry Center presents Amarnath Ravva and giovanni singleton, each reading from their work, followed by a conversation between the poets and in response to questions from their audience. Ravva reads from his prose work American Canyon (Kaya Press, 2014), presenting still and moving images related to, and incorporated into, this book "blending myth with interviews and first person narrative" exploring "the ghosts of history." singleton reads from her California Book Award-winning book of poetry, Ascension (Counterpath Press, 2011), written under the spiritual influence of Alice Coltrane, and as a "diary of intentionality, [wherein] the behearer and the beholder approach the world with an attitude of longing—for less: less sorrow, less suffering." This program was supported by the San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund.
