Riverside, CA: University of California, 1968. First Printing. Single Sheet. Signed by Robert Peters & illustrator, his daughter Meredith Peters. A broadside (11"x14") announcing a poetry reading by Robert Peters (1924-2014), the acclaimed, prolific poet & critic. The reading took place at the University of California at Riverside on April 10, 1968. Peters' first published volume of poems, Songs for a Son, appeared only the previous year, famous as his response to the tragic death of his four-year-old son in 1960. With illustrations by the poet's daughter, Meredith Peters. Both poet & illustrator have hand-signed their names in black ink on this broadside. A most beautiful & extremely rare early Peters-related collectible. In very fine condition with only a few short, faint creases at upper edge & corners; tiny bump-crease at lower right corner.
