Happy Birthday Joanne Kyger

Here’s Joanne reading for UC Berkeley’s Lunch Poems series a few years back. (a fantastic series, if you’re unaware of it – definitely worth checking out also, when you get time, all the other readers).


And another more recent photo by John Sarsgard, taken last summer at Joanne’s home in Bolinas.
