David Bromige

Known for his avant-garde style and razor wit, David Bromige was considered part of the San Francisco poetry renaissance of the late 1960s and early '70s. Bromige was born in London, the son of a newsreel operator, and survived the German blitzkrieg there during World War II. He immigrated to Canada to live near his sister in Vancouver, earning an undergraduate degree in English from University of British Columbia. He then won a scholarship to UC Berkeley, where he earned a master's degree in English. He began teaching at Sonoma State in 1970 and stayed for 23 years. Bromige published more than 40 books of poetry and won dozens of awards, including a Western States Arts Federation award in 1988 for his collection "Desire." He was also Sonoma County's second poet laureate, serving from 2001 to 2003.
