‘Poetruck’ to Drive up Interest in National Poetry Month Saturday

Above, left to right, a pretty serious bunch of poets: Alameda’s poets laureate Gene Kahane and Cathy Dana along with local poet Amos White invite all Alameda poets to climb on board the “The Poetruck” on Saturday, April 27, any time between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The specially decorated truck will be parked in front of Books Inc., 1344 Park St., to help celebrate both Independent Bookstore Day and National Poetry Month. Poets and lovers of poetry are welcome to hop into the truck, have a seat and read aloud a poem of their own or one they love.
