San Francisco Poet Laureate emerita Kim Shuck invites Tommi Avicolli Mecca, Elaine C Brown, EK Keith and Dena Rod to celebrate Pride Month at SFPL’s monthly poetry reading.

Kim Shuck was San Francisco’s seventh Poet Laureate. Her poetry draws on her multiethnic background which includes Polish and Cherokee heritage, and her experiences as a lifelong resident of San Francisco. Her most recent book of poetry, Exile Heart, was published in 2021 by That Painted Horse Press. In her term as Poet Laureate, she hosted scores of free poetry and art workshops for all ages at neighborhood libraries and schools and worked closely with San Francisco Public Library and the San Francisco Arts Commission to launch major citywide initiatives to honor Native American Indigenous People’s heritage.


Programs designed to celebrate the art of the poem, including readings and talks.

Discover new titles, share inspiring works and participate in challenges and contests. 

Summer Stride is the Library's annual summer learning, reading and exploration program for all ages and abilities. Read and learn with the Library all summer long.


This program is sponsored by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
