Carolee Sanchez and Lawson Fusao Inada: October 15, 1975

The Poetry Center presents Carolee Sanchez and Lawson Inada, reading from their poetry in the César Chavez Center at San Francisco State University. Sanchez, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and mixed Laguna Pueblo and Lebanese ancestry, at the time of this appearance coordinated the Poetry in the Schools program in the Bay Area. She would later receive a BA from SF State (in Arts Administration), though before that degree she had joined the faculty at SF State, where she taught for multiple programs into the mid-1980s, chairing American Indian Studies for part of that time. Inada, raised in Fresno, California, and incarcertated with his Japanese-American family during World War II, at the time of this event had been living in Oregon already for a decade, where he taught for many years at Southern Oregon University, in Ashland. Lewis MacAdams, in his first season as director of The Poetry Center, introduces the poets.
