Welcome back to campus for our new free program series “Lunchtime Sessions: Music, Dance, and Storytelling in the Garden.” Grab your favorite picnic blanket, pick up some lunch in our new cafe, Town Fare, and join us as we come together to delight in the joy of live performance outside in our newly renovated garden.

Every week, local artists and performers spanning multiple genres will engage with visitors and guests through music, dance, and storytelling. This week, James Cagney, winner of the 2021 Academy of American Poets James Laughlin Award and the 2019 PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award, will be in conversation around craft and poetic impact with Michelle Mush Lee, with performances by alternative folk and soul musician Azuah.

This event is co-produced in partnership with Nomadic Press. Through publications, events, and active community participation, Nomadic Press collectively weaves together platforms for intentionally marginalized voices to take their rightful place within the world of the written and spoken word.

Lunchtime Sessions are free and open to the public; tickets and reservations are not required. Food and beverages are not included. In order to maintain safety for all guests and staff, capacity may be limited. Please review our Safe Community Agreements in advance of your visit.
