Gary Soto is the author of children's books, young adult fiction, and numerous collections of poetry, and is often referred to as one of the nation's first Chicano poets. In "What Poets are Like", Soto captures episodes of a writer's inner and public life. From rejection letters to craving only the dog's company, to the acclaim (or lack thereof) that comes with writing poetry, Soto's deep wit and self-deprecating sense of story-telling opens up toward surprising reflection and appreciation of a writer's life. Soto will read from "What Poets are Like" and sign copies of his book.
