Alan Berecka

Alan Berecka

Alan Berecka was the Poet Laureate of Corpus Christi from 2017-2019.  Five full collections and three chapbooks have been published. The latest from Black Spruce Press (A Living is not a Life: A Working Title, 2021) explores what he considers the over-importance that is placed on work in American culture, and how he came to this conclusion by working a myriad of jobs. He is currently employed as a librarian at Del Mar College and looks forward to retirement more fervently with each and every day.
