Mark your calendars for APRIL 29 and stay tuned for more information. #lithopfresno #lithop17 #lithop #fresno #towerdistrict
The 2017 LitHop headliner is Gary Soto! Gary Soto first began to write poetry in spring 1972 at Fresno City College. In 1977, he published his first collection of poetry, The Elements of San Joaquin. Since then he has published forty-plus books for children, young adults and adults. He is the author of “Oranges,” the most anthologized poem in contemporary literature. His books have sold nearly four million copies nationwide and have been translated into French, Japanese, Italian, Korean, and Spanish. In and Out of Shadows, his musical about undocumented youth, played at sold out crowds in San Francisco. The Gary Soto Literary Museum is located at Fresno City College. He lives in Berkeley, California. #garysoto #lithop17 #fresno
