February 2018 Poetry at Florey's.

Florey's Books invites you to our ongoing poetry event!

***Saturday, February 24th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are Karen Llagas and Florencia Milito.

From Sherri:

I'd like to invite you to consider joining Aaron and me for our poetry reading later this month. We'll be featuring poets Karen Llagas and Florencia Milito for their poetic view on the world.

As always, you are invited to bring your own work to read at open mic (3 minutes, please, and do time yourselves so you can observe the time limit); our open mics are among the most varied, high quality and courteous I've observed!

If you can, please also bring a snack or drink to share (water is particularly appreciated). We now have plenty of napkins, plates, and other supplies, thanks to you!

About the featured poets:


Karen Llagas’s first collection of poetry, Archipelago Dust, was published by Meritage Press in 2010. A recipient of a Hedgebrook Residency, and a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Prize, she lives in San Francisco and works as a translator & lecturer at UC Berkeley.


Born in Argentina, Florencia Milito spent her early childhood in Venezuela and has lived in the U.S. since she was nine. She is a bilingual poet, essayist, and translator whose work has appeared in ZYZZYVA; Indiana Review; Catamaran; Entremares; Digging through the Fat; Diálogo; 92nd Street Y; Kenyon Review; and Latina Voices, Protest, and Struggle in 21st Century USA. A Hedgebrook alumna, CantoMundo fellow, and San Francisco Grotto fellow, she lives in San Francisco and works as a translator and teaching artist.

We hope to see you!
