Each year Francis Parker celebrates Poetry Week, February 3 - 7, 2020, with all types of coordinated activities. This year Francis Parker has invited San Diego Book Arts to be involved by creating and submitting pieces to a Members Show entitled Louder Than Words which will be displayed at the beautiful James Alan Rose Gallery on their campus in Linda Vista. The art show and reception will provide another media for examining the word, in poetry, prose or storytelling.   SDBA will also be providing gallery walks and docent tours for the students.
