California Poet Laureate coming to Pasadena (Graywolf Press); Dhr. Seven, Crystal Quintero, Wisdom Quarterly

Dana Gioia reads and signs new book
99 Poems: New & Selected Cover ImageCalifornia Poet Laureate Dana Gioia has long been celebrated as a poet of sharp intelligence and brooding emotion with an ingenious command of his craft. His new book, 99 Poems: New & Selected, gathers for the first time work from across his career, including many remarkable new poems.

The book reveals and renews the pleasures, consolations, and sense of wonder that poetry bestows because Gioia has not arranged this selection chronologically but instead by theme in seven sections:
  • Mystery
  • Place
  • Remembrance
  • Imagination
  • Stories
  • Songs
  • Love. More
Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman's receipt to be checked when entering line.
