The UC Davis Arboretum invites fans of good writing and beautiful gardens to enjoy a reading by poet Aung Aung Taik at noon Wednesday, April 13. Taik is a Burmese poet and artist living in San Francisco. He has published many poems and essays, a novel and a cookbook, and his work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle and Poetry USA.
He is also one of Burma’s pioneering modern painters, and has had numerous solo exhibitions in the United States, Japan and Burma.
The free event will take place at the Wyatt Deck, on Old Davis Road next to the Arboretum redwood grove. (The backup location in case of rain is Room 146 Environmental Horticulture.) Parking is available for $6 in Visitor Lot 5, at Old Davis Road and A Street.
The event is sponsored by the Arboretum and Rebecca Morrison. For more information, call (530) 752-4880 or visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu.
