This reading is a fundraiser for Kundiman, a non-profit organization that fosters emerging Asian American poets with an annual poetry retreat. We are raising funds for a Kundiman West Coast Scholarship Fund, which would support one Kundiman fellow from the West Coast to attend the retreat for free, as well as a community activist/poet. So far, we have raised $90.00 and hope to raise the full $300.00 by the
end of summer.

Eastwind Books of Berkeley has been serving the Asian American community since 1982 and welcomes people to attend this wonderful Kundiman event.

& Special Book Raffle!

Books donated by poets, Joseph O. Legaspi, Oliver de la Paz, Ching-In Chen, Lee Herrick, & Truong Tran!!! Give from the Heart and Win Big!!!
