bjanepr

The reading will feature prose, poetry, and music. Performers include: Dickson Lam, David Maduli, and youth from the grassroots organization Serve the People (STP). Proceeds will benefit STP. No one turned away for lack of funds.

*Dickson Lam earned his MFA degree in creative writing from Rutgers-Newark University and is also a graduate of UC Berkeley and Columbia University. He has taught in small schools in New York, Oakland, and San Francisco and was a founding teacher at June Jordan School for Equity. He is currently writing a memoir about growing up Asian American in a public housing project in San Francisco and trying to father himself the best he can with an absent father.

*David Maduli is a veteran public school teacher, active deejay in the Bay Area music scene, and published poet. He has received degrees from UC Berkeley and Harvard Graduate School of Education, and is an alumni of Voices of our Nations Arts Foundation (VONA) summer workshop for writers of color. He is in the process of completing his debut collection of poems.

*Serve the People is committed to the liberation of Asian Pacific Islander communities by organizing to address the inequalities that we face through political and cultural education, self healing, building unity, and fighting for social justice for all people.
