SDPG is pleased to present Rodrigo Toscano, this coming Friday, April 9, 7pm. The reading, with reception to follow (and party to follow reception), will be held at the Guild's current headquarters in the Normal Heights area of San Diego.
Originally from San Diego (with some years living in San Francisco), Rodrigo Toscano now lives in New York City, where he works at The Labor Institute. He is the author The Disparities (Green Integer), Partisans (O Books), and Platform (Atelos). Forthcoming in June, 2004 is a new collection of poetry, titled To Leveling Swerve (Krupskaya Books). A poem from that collection was chosen by Lyn Hejinian for the “Best American Poetry Anthology, 2004.” (Scribners). His poetry and prose criticism has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan. He was poetry co-coordinator for “The Social Mark” symposium in Philadelphia, 2003, and a recent participant in the “Poetry & Empire, Post-Invasion Poetics” at the University of Pennsylvania,” as well as in “Societies of American Poetry, Dissenting Practices” at Georgetown University.
