Fault Lines: Children’s Earthquake Poetry

Gault School Press

A collection of 70 poems written following the 1989 earthquake in Patrice’s Gault Elementary School poetry workshops.

“There are certain days by which we measure time and history. Things happened to us either before or after such and such a day. In Santa Cruz, on October 17, 1989, the world became a different place… Until now we have not heard much from those who were perhaps most profoundly affected: the children."
