May 11, 2015

For The Book Report we ask Bay Area authors to tell us about a book that’s meaningful for them. Today we hear from Bay Area writer Peter Orner.

I think this book will challenge anybody to see any individual, whoever they are, whether they live on the streets or not, in a much deeper way.

Lunada: Lit on the full moon

Apr 7, 2014

The Lunada is one of the Bay Area’s only bilingual open mics.

Every month, on the full moon, writers, poets, musicians, and artists gather at the Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco’s Mission District to present their work in Spanish, English, or a mix of the two.

“In Latin America there is a history of gathering under the full moon, of families and communities gathering,” says Lunda host and curator Sandra Garcia Rivera. “It stems from that tradition.”

It’s a tradition that San Francisco resident Stacey Leigh has made her own.
