Poetry Reading Series In-Person

Come out for the poetry, the sparkling company, or the delectable snacks, but don't miss this warm and moving event featuring the work of three poets with deep ties to Marin County: Catharine Clark-Sayles, Gerald Fleming, and David Watts! (And chocolate. We promise there will still be chocolate hearts.) In collaboration with the Marin Poetry Center.


Catharine Clark-Sayles is a retired physician with an MFA in poetry and narrative medicine from Dominican University. Her work is widely published in journals and anthologies, and she is the author of a chapbook, Brats, from Finishing Line Press, and three full-length collections, One Breath and Lifeboat from Tebot Bach Press and The Telling published by Saint Julian Press in 2023.





Gerald Fleming's most recent book is The Bastard and the Bishop, prose poems (Hanging Loose Press, Brooklyn). Earlier books are One, an experiment in monosyllabic prose poems (Hanging Loose), The Choreographer, prose poems (Sixteen Rivers, San Francisco), Night of Pure Breathing, prose poems (H.L.), and Swimmer Climbing onto Shore (16R). Fleming taught in San Francisco's public schools for thirty-seven years. 





David Watts is grateful to poetry. After a long drought this past year has seen five books published in five genres. His background in music, medicine and idyll musing has become the substance and the foundation for an enlarging body of work that includes memoir, mysteries, short stories, poetry, westerns, haiku, aphorisms, and NPR commentary. No complaints, he says.
