Ina Coolbrith & Friends: History & Literature on the Paths

Contact: Walks Coordinator [masked]
Leader: Aleta George
Transit: AC buses #65 or #67
Level: Medium * Pace: Moderate

Description: Join Aleta George for a loop walk in the hills on the roads and pathways named after San Francisco's literary pioneers. Aleta discovered this themed walk while working at a friend's house on her biography-in-progress about Ina Coolbrith, California's first poet laureate and Oakland's first public librarian. On the walk Aleta will recite several of Coolbrith's poems and tell stories about Coolbrith and her colleagues Bret Harte, John Muir, and Charles Keeler. Well-behaved dogs on leash permitted. Rain cancels.
