Botanical Garden


Join us for an evening of poetry with Berkeley poets Keith Ekiss, Jennifer Foerster, and Tess Taylor. As they share with you their words they will also be conversing with a live musical trio led by Rob Reich to create an interactive atmosphere underneath our towering redwoods in our gorgeous Redwood Grove Amphitheater. Bring a picnic!

Her book The Forage House is forthcoming from Red Hen Press. She reviews poetry for NPR’s All Things Considered and teaches writing at UC Berkeley. She lives in El Cerrito, California.

Jennifer Elise Foerster has an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, a BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts, and was Wallace Stegner Fellow in Poetry at Stanford University. She is the author of Leaving Tulsa, published in 2013 by University of Arizona Press.
