[Literature] in the city

From the Beat movement and City Lights to McSweeney's, San Francisco has been shaped by its literary history. But this history does not simply lie in the texts produced by the writers—it was also a history produced in the city's fabric, in literary movements that defined and influenced people and place. Join us in exploring the role of literature in shaping our local cultural understanding of Urbanism and policy-making. The SPUR Young Urbanists welcome writer Stephen Elliott of the San Francisco Writer's Grotto and editor of The Rumpus, writer and City Lights editor Elaine Katzenberger, Filipino American poet and professor Barbara Jane Reyes and poet Matthew Zapruder, the forum moderator, for an evening that explores [Literature] in the City.

SPUR's Young Urbanist program is generously supported by the Koret Foundation.
