Title Coast Poetry in the '70's and '80's
Author Larke, Julia
Physical Description 1 DVD; 86 min.
Published Date August 22, 2010
Summary Four coast poets tell stories of Mendocino history from a time when the town had been nearly abandoned. They arrived with a commitment to writing and surviving in a bereft economy, but one freer to development in the arts. It was a time when a poetry reading might be the only event in town with an armload of firewood as the price of admission.
Hosted by Kris Smith and filmed by Julia Larke.
