The most recent volume in the San Francisco Poet Laureate Series, "All That's Left," is a powerful collection of poems by street poet turned city laureate Jack Hirschman. The volume opens with the poet’s autobiographical inaugural address, which traces his career as a poet, editor, translator, and agitator for political and social causes. Along with more personal poems, "All That's Left" includes a homage to fallen comrades like Bob Kaufman and Jack Kerouac.
Jack Hirschman is a poet and social activist who has written more than 50 volumes of poetry. Dismissed from teaching at UCLA for anti-war activities in 1966, he moved to San Francisco in 1973, and at present is the city's poet laureate. Hirschman translates nine languages and edited the seminal "Artuad Anthology." (Booksmith_in_SF)
