Lyrics and Dirges: Oscar Bermeo, Barbara Jane Reyes, Rosa Lane, Indigo Moor, Aisha Stone

When: Wed., April 20, 7:30 p.m. 2011

Barbara Jane Reyes and her husband Oscar Bermeo - poets, both - call Oakland home, but found their way here from, respectively, the Philippines and Ecuador. Similarly, each one's work approaches Bay Area living from a different perspective: The former direct but prismatic, the latter strangely specific and often stark. Reyes and Bermeo, along with Rosa Lane, Indigo Moor, and Aisha Stone, read at this month's Lyrics and Dirges on Wednesday, April 20, at Pegasus Books (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley). 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or Pegasus.indiebound.
