Poetry on buses in Sacramento? Thanks to RT Metro, UC Davis Extension, and the Sacramento Poetry Center, there's an alternative to reading advertising inside local buses these days. Inspired by programs in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, the new Poets on Board program puts poetry placards inside RT's buses to feature the work of local poets and artists. The first placards were installed during April (Poetry Month) and the poem is an excerpt from Enso, by Viola Weinberg, Sacramento's 2001 poet laureate.

The Sacramento Poetry Center (SPC) has produced the first installment of Poets on Board, a program of bus placards that will feature poetry on RT Metro buses around the Sacramento region. Underwritten by UC Davis Extension, the Poets on Board program will feature a different poet for each season of the year. The first piece is an excerpt from Enso, a poem by Viola Weinberg, and it features the artwork of Mario Uribe. The placard itself was designed by local graphic designer Richard Hansen.

Weinberg and Uribe will be talking about their project that produced the poem and artwork.  There will also be a limited edition offering – signed copies of the full-size bus placards will be available on that date. Sales of the limited edition version will help fund future bus placards planned as part of the Poets on Board program.

I have been out of the loop for sometime, but I am crazy for Enso--the Weinberg/Hansen joint. Can I still get a limited addition, anyhow, anyway? Please, please direct me.
