Spend your October Second Saturday with Genny Lim, Arlene Biala, and CHSA. Genny Lim will read from Paper Gods and Rebels, her third collection of poetry culled from 25 years of mostly unpublished works. Arlene Biala will read from her beckoning hands, a collection of poems as prayer flags, offerings across the ocean, earth and sky. RSVP HERE!
Genny Lim is a native San Franciscan poet, performer, playwright, educator and cultural activist whose artistic vision strives to express the uniqueness and universality of her experience as the child of immigrant Chinese, deeply engaged in the civil rights and Asian American arts movement since the early 1970s.
Arlene Biala is a Filipina poet and performance artist, born in San Francisco. She is the author of bone, her first book of poetry published in 1993, and continental drift, published by West End Press (through University of New Mexico Press distribution) in 1999. She received her MFA in Poetics & Writing from New College of CA, and was the recipient of an artist residency at Montalvo.
