Admission:

Join Mahogany L. Browne, Steve Cannon, Cornelius Eady, Bob Holman, Tyehimba Jess, Patricia Spears Jones, Julie Patton, Austin Straus, and Quincy Troupe for readings and discussion of the life and legacy of this electric and under-recognized pivotal poet of the post-war period.

Los Angeles poet and writer Wanda Coleman (1946 – 2013) was the author of twenty books, most recently The World Falls Away and, with Austin Straus, The Love Project: A Marriage Made in Poetry. Considered the "Unofficial Poet Laureate of Los Angeles," Coleman was active across the city's artistic scenes as a poet, performer, and singer, devoted to themes of racism and the female experience.
