October 2015 Event - Ina Coolbrith

Thursday, Oct 15, 2015

On Thursday, October 15th, Author Aleta George will introduce us to Ina Coolbrith, the first Poet Laureate of California and mentor to many, including Jack London and Isadora Duncan.

During San Francisco's first literary heyday, poet Ina Coolbrith was the pearl of her tribe, a tribe that included Bret Harte, Charles Warren Stoddard, Mark Twain, and John Muir. Aleta George will introduce Ina in her twenties during the early years of Overland Monthly magazine, and shed light on the nature of Ina's relationship with - as she called them - her "boys."
