Co-presented with Poetry Society of America
The Voices of Women in American Poetry
Marilyn Chin, Toi Derricotte, and Percival Everett

Moderated by Alice Quinn, Executive Director, Poetry Society of America

The Poetry of America’s 2014 national series The Voice of Women in American Poetry celebrates an enormous literary heritage. Distinguished contemporary poets—both male and female—will gather in five cities around the country to pay tribute to the immense achievement of a wide range of poets, from Phyllis Wheatley and Anne Bradstreet to Adrienne Rich and Lucille Clifton.  In Los Angeles, join poets Marilyn Chin on Ai, Toi Derricotte on Anne Sexton and Percival Everett on Gertrude Stein.
