California Dreaming: poems from California poets selected by Library staff.
Join us for an exhibition of poems by California poets, lining the atrium on the third floor of the Main Library. The 15 poems were selected by Library staff and represent some of our favorite poetry. The exhibit will be up from April 1 (National Poetry Month) to December 1, 2013. The poets are both well-known (Alejandro Murguia and Al Young) and new to the scene (Stewart Shaw and Monica Xu). We're sure you will find something to love in this exhibit.
Make your next trip to the Library a literary one with these wonderful poets.

Born in Berkeley, California, artist and photographer Ronald Hirano, a Deaf Nisei, was "adopted" by Miss Delight Rice, who founded the Philippine School for the Deaf in 1907, when his entire family was interned to relocation camps with 120,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II.
This exhibition of his works includes photography, linoleum-engraved and designed covers of the California News (the newspaper from the California School for the Deaf), linoleum-engraved cards and pen and ink cards.
