"Fishing for Words": Toni Mirosevich's Pacifica Pier Poetry Walk April 14

Pacifica Pier Poetry & "Pier Pressure":   Poet and San Francisco State University writing professor Toni Mirosevich got a grant to write about “the strange, untamed world of the Pacifica Pier,” which juts into the ocean from the usually cool and foggy town of Pacifica, just south of San Francisco. She’s also organizing Pacifica’s first-ever Pier Poetry Walk, “Fishing for Words,” (1 - 4pm  Saturday, April 14) and “Pier Pressure,” a pier celebration (7 - 10pm Saturday, April 28) with film, photos, music, poetry, fishing and surfing tales, and more. Hear Toni Mirosevich tell stories from Pacifica, its pier and its people in this live conversation with host Eric Jansen. (Time permitting, she’ll also read from Queer Street, her poetry book about life in Pacifica.)  7 pm PST Thursday, April 5, on 91.7 FM in the Bay Area and streaming live worldwide on kalw.org
