HOMETOWN POET ... Menlo Park poet and former Palo Alto Weekly Title Pages editor Charlotte Muse will be among the Bay Area writers featured in An Evening of Poetry Wednesday, June 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Kepler's, 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park. Muse will join Constance Crawford, Patrick Daly, Phyllis Koestenbaum and Priscilla Lee in reading their poems from "The Place That Inhabits Us: Poems from the San Francisco Bay Watershed." With a foreword by Robert Hass, the poems in this anthology embody what it's like to live in the astonishing weave of cities and towns, landscape and language, climate and history that make up the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Selected by the members of Sixteen Rivers Press, a regional poetry collective named after the web of rivers that flow into San Francisco Bay, the poems are drawn from both a physical and a metaphoric watershed.
