OAKLAND OUT LOUD (2007)
"With far more flavors than an ice-cream shoppe, and far more colors, too, Oakland Out Loud is a reminder of what poety should be: original, audacious, and beautiful. As a result, it is a reminder that numanitcy can be all those things, too. This is a virtuoso collection."
-Gerald Halsam, author of Grace Period and Haslams' Valley
"PEN Oakland writers are an amazing array of voices. Soak up their powerful prose and poems about the internal and external world, near and far."
-William Wong, author of Yellow Journalist, Dispatches from Asian America
WORDS UPON THE WATERS (2006)
This book was created as a collaborative effort to aid survivors of Hurricane Katrina including poetry written in response to the devastation and loss suffered by the people who were victims of the storm. The artists donated all the work in this anthology and all proceeds were donated to the Center for Independent Living.
