This Thursday, May 26th, we are excited to have Patti Trimble & Fred Norman read!
Patti Trimble‘s poetry is widely published and she performs her lyric poems in the USA and Europe. She lives in Sicily part-time, works with translations, and thinks often about the tower of Babel. She will read about Greek tragedy/myth, and will be reading some in Italian. You can find out more about Patti here.
Fred Norman served in the Marines and Air Force for 10 years and now is a member of Veterans For Peace, with the emphasis on Peace. He has a BA in Chinese Studies from SFSU and an MA in Writing from USF. What he calls his “sweeter” work of the past has been published in numerous local publications and in England, but he now writes almost exclusively on antiwar themes in the hope that he might someday write the words that would motivate others to try to put an end to war.
