Gender— its meaning, its expression, its categories — has become a cultural flashpoint today. Inviting free expression and open discussion of the personal experience of gender, the Library will host an open mic afternoon emceed by Marin Poet Laureate Rebecca Foust as part of her project, “Poetry as Sanctuary.”

Please join us to share a poem or other one-page piece of creative writing about gender, interpreted any way you like. Everyone is welcome to read their own, or another writer’s, work. Time permitting, a discussion of the issues raised in the readings will follow.

Sunday, December 3, 2017 in the Creekside Room of the Mill Valley Library.

For adults and high school students only. Registration recommended. To register, visit the Reference Desk or
