Poet laureate inauguration, Feb. 27


San Francisco's new poet laureate, who also happens to be a Guardian columnist, gets officially inaugurated Jan. 27 -- and while I have no idea what he's going to say, I expect it will be lively. Murguia's a political poet and has a lot to say about what's happening and what's happened to the Mission and the Latino community. He's also, of course, an awesome writer, so expect a lyrical presentation. 1 pm to 3 pm, Koret Auditorium, SF public library.
