Bay Area Event: Poetry Reading with Nathaniel Tarn

Come celebrate with the Borneo Project the joyous and fertile union of poetry and activism. 

The Borneo Project is pleased to invite you to a reading on October 12th by the celebrated poet, translator, and anthropologist, Nathaniel Tarn. Octavio Paz praises Tarn’s work for its “rich temperament, a remarkable, linguistic inventiveness, and a vision both original and universal.” A fierce defender of the rights of indigenous peoples, Tarn’s poetry glows with what the American Book Review calls “a furious lucidity.” 

Nathaniel will be in the Bay Area as one of four poets reading at City Lights to celebrate the 75 anniversary of New Direction Press. A long time Borneo Project stalwart, he has kindly agreed to a private reading. 

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 – 6 p.m.

77 Edgecroft Road, Kensington
