Chloë Delafield has been a regular at Cary’s writing workshop for a number of years and went on to publish one of her pieces in the Sun magazine.
Chloë is on the board of directors for Green Branch, a mobile children’s library dedicated to social justice and the environment. Green Branch has existed as a pop-up reading room for the past year and is now raising funds for a bookmobile that will share materials and cultivate radical thought among young people around the Bay Area.
You can check out the Indiegogo fundraising campaign (complete with adorable claymation movie) here and learn more about Green Branch here.
Checking out the Green Branch Library
After the Saturday workshop I settle on the couch reading The Maverick Poets, that book edited by Steve Kowit, who I was lodging next to down at the Sun Esalen thing,
him in his yurt
and me in mine next door
But the thing I love after the workshop is that feeling afterwards like we’ve all been together in this room dreaming out loud together. So then I read that poem by Bukowski about the cat, “The History of a Tough Motherfucker” and think life is pretty good.
