April 7-9, 2000

The fourth residency in our "Life Forms" series finds us in the happy position of being to have C.S. Giscombe among us in San Francisco for a weekend. He is one of the leading voices in African-American and emigre writing, and the author of At Large(1989), Here(1994), and Giscome Road(1998), about which Adrienne Rich has written, "This is a work of great originality, authority and verbal beauty, a book that will reward many readings. C. S. Giscombe has attempted much, and realized much, in this long, enthralling poem." Farrar, Straus & Giroux/North Point will publish a book of Giscombe's essays, Into & Out of Dislocation,in 1999. He is an Associate Professor of English at Pennsylvania State University. Rare—except at Small Press Traffic—is the moment when one of the USA's most powerful writers comes to share his spirit of place with our little town.
