Weekend - Poet Brynn Saito To Read At Respite By The River

Aug 23, 2019


For the Weekend, we’re bringing you poetry from writer, poet, and Fresno State professor Brynn Saito.

She’ll be reading next Thursday at the San Joaquin River Parkway as part of its summer series, Respite by the River. We know Thursday’s not quite the weekend, but it’s close enough. The free event takes place August 29 at the San Joaquin River Parkway, starting at 6 p.m. Musician Jeff Bowman will be performing, followed by Saito's reading.

Listen to the interview above to hear Brynn Saito talk about drawing on memory and family history in art, and returning to Fresno.
