Genny Lim

Former SFJAZZ Poet Laureate Genny Lim has collaborated with such great jazz legends as Max Roach, Herbie Lewis, Eddie Marshall, and Fred Ho, and local musicians John Santos and Jon Jang. She has been featured at jazz festivals throughout the country and has toured World Poetry Festivals in Venezuela, Bosnia and Italy. Her award-winning play "Paper Angels" was the first Asian-American play to be aired on PBS’s American Playhouse in 1985. It received a San Francisco Fringe Festival Award in 2010 and was remounted in 2016 at the Seattle Fringe Festival. Lim's performance piece "Don't Shoot! A Requiem in Black," dedicated to Black Lives Matter, was presented at SFJAZZ last year with musicians Marshall Trammell, Francis Wong and rap artist Equipto. Lim is author of five poetry collections, Winter Place, Child of War, Paper Gods and Rebels, KRA!, La Morte Del Tempo, and co-author of the seminal Island: Poetry and History of Chinese Immigrants on Angel Island.
