Poet and activist Tony Robles will read and sign copies of his new book Cool Don't Live Here No More. Refreshments will be served!

"In poems and vignettes, Tony Robles has written the generational memory of San Francisco at the point where alienation, deportations, and technological invasions are gutting its soul. This Filipino activist just won't have it and neither will you after reading this superb book that restores the sense of a People's City."—Jack Hirschman


Tony Robles was born and raised in San Francisco. He is the author of two children's books, Lakas and the Manilatown Fish and Lakas and the Makibaka Hotel, written for his son, Lakas. He is co-editor and a revolutionary worker scholar of Poor magazine. In 2010 he was nominated for the Pushcart Prize by Mythium Literary Journal for his short story, "In My Country." Robles is also a housing rights advocate and board member of the Manilatown Heritage Foundation. He currently lives in Oakland with his wife Tiny and his son Tibu.
