Event Details

Booksmith is delighted to host local literary nonprofit Small Press Traffic as they present two superb visiting poets, Anselm Berrigan and Hoa Nguyen. Please join us!

Small Press Traffic hosts poets Anselm Berrigan and Hoa Nguyen as part of its longtime reading series. Since 1974 Small Press Traffic (SPT) has been at the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area innovative writing scene, bringing together authors, readers, educators, small presses, and community members through talks, readings, workshops, and performances. Its mission is to provide a local and national platform for experimental writing, foregrounding underserved writers and those who identify as women, people of color, and/or from the LGBTQI community.


Hoa Nguyen is the author of eight poetry books and chapbooks. She lives in Toronto, Ontario where she teaches poetics at Ryerson University and curates a reading series.

Anselm Berrigan's recent books of poetry include Come In Alone (Wave, 2016) and Primitive State (Edge, 2015). A chapbook, Degrets, is forthcoming from Couch Press. He is the poetry editor for The Brooklyn Rail, and also editor of the just-about-released What Is Poetry? (Just kidding, I know you know): Selected Interviews from the Poetry Project Newsletter, 1983-2009.
