Mendocino poet/printers in San Francisco



POETS PULLING PRINTS
Friday, July 16, 7 pm - free, with signed letterpress broadsides
at the San Francisco Center for the Book
300 de Haro - San Francisco 94103
415 565 0545 - info@sfcb.org

Two Mendocino poets, Theresa Whitehill and William Bradd - with broadsides
designed and printed by Theresa Whitehill of Colored Horse Studios - will
read tonight in our on-going series celebrating poetry aloud and in print.
Partially funded by Fleischhacker Foundation, Poets & Writers, and
Zellerbach Foundation.

THERESA WHITEHILL is a long-time friend of the Center. As a poet-printer,
she is upholding an honored tradition in Northern California, which has
been home to so many fine literary printers. She further illustrates this
duality by holding two workshops at the Center in innovative letterpress
techniques and creative writing (see below). She was recently
poet-in-residence at Stags' Leap Winery in the Napa Valley. Her website
(www.colorhorse.com) features "Broadside Online" an innovative approach to
presenting poetry on the web, which she developed at the American Film
Institute in Los Angeles. Theresa studied in the Book Arts program at Mills
College, and for eight years was production manager of Zida Borcich
Letterpress in Fort Bragg before starting her own design and literary
business, Colored Horse Studios, on the Mendocino Coast in 1993. Her latest
book of poetry is "Milltown."

WILLIAM BRADD is a sheep rancher on the Mendocino Coast, where he has lived
for 30 years. Sense of place is a main thrust of his writing. He has been
an editor of the "Mendocino Review", taught for Poets in the Schools,
published two books of poetry: "Kingdom of Old Men" and "Dialogue of a
Three Corner Hat".
