Book Reading with Zev Levison:

"Song of Six Rivers"

Date: June 2nd, 5:00-6:00pm

Venue: Morris Graves Museum of Art

Location: 636 F Street, Eureka, CA 95501

Admission price: FREE


Local author, poet and educator Zev Levinson explores the colorful history, rich diversity, and stunning geography of the Humboldt Bay/Six Rivers region through a blend of lyrical poetry and archival photography in his new book, Song of Six Rivers. Zev Levinson will give a pre-Arts Alive! public reading of his new title on Saturday, June 2nd from 5-6 pm, at the Morris Graves Museum of Art.


Many locals know the author by his first name, Dan, who works with California Poets in the Schools, bringing poetry into classrooms and other sites.  He has taught at Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods, is a Redwood Writing Project teacher-consultant and teacher-leader, and a founder and facilitator of the Lost Coast Writers Retreat.  He holds degrees in creative writing, literature, and the teaching of writing from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro; the University of California, Santa Cruz; and Humboldt State University.


“Song of Six Rivers runs deep.  On a journey of memory inspired by men he revered, Zev Levinson brings landscapes and Humboldt history reflected in evocative photographs vividly to life.  His song conveys a personal bond within nature with an immediacy of experience and a sense of the sacred that is heightened by awareness of death.”
