The Poetry Center presents the second event of the Kuwentuhan (Talkstory) project, a reading featuring Javier O. Huerta, Lehua M. Taitano, and Angela Narciso Torres held at Alley Cat Books in San Francisco. Javier Huerta reads new, unpublished poems, and translations from his book Some Clarifications y otros poemas (Arte Publico, 2007). Lehua M. Taitano reads her longer poem "Sonoma," and her short story "Makana." Angela Narciso Torres reads from her book Blood Orange (Aquarius Press, 2013) and newer work. Kuwentuhan (Talkstory), a project of The Poetry Center and Barbara Jane Reyes, is supported by the Creative Work Fund.
The Poetry Center presents Stefan Hyner in a reading and talk entitled "This Other World Not Civilized." Hyner reads in reverse-chronology from his own poetry dated 2003–2015, all in manuscript. He also reads his translations from Classical Chinese poets Lao Tzu, T'ao Yuan-Ming and Li T'ai Po, and responds to questions and remarks from the audience.
