Saturday, July 23, 5-8p.m. at the Joaquin Miller Park Fire Circle [map]

The Heart of the Muse joins with the Berkeley Branch of the California Writers Club to gather East Bay literary communities for the 2016 Jack London Legacy Celebration.

A hundred years ago, Jack London, Joaquin Miller, Ina Coolbrith and their contemporaries would gather informally at Woodminister for “a blanket and a basket of chow.” From this group the CWC was born. These writers would perform “hijinx” in the form of skits & readings to amuse one another.

Gathering with the Heart of the Muse sparks new connections, friendships, and ideas between East Bay writers, in all of our richness and variety.

Guests are invited to bring readings by early Bay Area authors, or works inspired by them. Please sign up in advance here.

Please sign up to bring a potluck dish and pitch in to help.
