October 16, 2015, Friday evening -- She is reading many authors, edited together by Erick Lyle

Sitting in the beautiful, mural-rich Balmy Alley
She is reading Streetopia, edited by Erick Lyle. It's about the Streetopia exhibition in the Tenderloin neighborhood in San Francisco that happened in 2012. Artists got the community involved and turned abandoned storefronts into interactive art places, celebrating the Tenderloin as a neighborhood.

Lately, a couple of her favorite books have been Home Ground: A Guide to the American Landscape Paperback, edited by Barry Lopez & Debra Gwartney, and The Place That Inhabits Us: Poems from the San Francisco Bay Watershed, edited by Sixteen Rivers Press, with a foreword by Robert Haas.
