Join us to hear poets Noah Ross and Owen Hill read some of their work and share some of their thoughts on being and becoming queer. Alameda County Youth Poet Laureates will share some poems to open the event. After the reading and talk, we will make some blackout poetry together!
Noah Ross is a bookseller, editor, and poet based in Berkeley, CA. The author of Active Reception (Nightboat Books, 2021) and Swell (Otis Books / Seismicity Editions, 2019), Noah runs Poor Old Tired Books, edits Baest: a journal of queer forms & affects and co-runs Mo0on/IO, a chapbook press.
Longtime Bay Area poet Owen Hill is the author of two mystery novels, a book of short fiction, and several books of poetry, and most recently, Hands on a Mirror, a "post-blog meandering in the picaresque tradition." A retired bookseller, Owen fills his days writing and doing labor organizing for the IWW.
