The venue was perfect as seven local poets gathered to read selections from their writings on Friday, August 19 at the Old City Hall downtown.
I had missed an earlier reading the previous Friday due to a cold. I still had the cold on this Friday, but I was determined to hear at least a few of the poets read. Once there, I was so drawn in by the depth and passion of the readings that I was there until the end.
Local poets will be reading from their work tonight at the Old City Hall downtown, from 7:30-9:00. This event is free.
Also, the Poet Laureate of the United States, Juan Felipe Herrera, will be speaking at Shasta College on Wednesday, September 7 at 7:00 PM. This event will also be free.
Our own Sharon Owen, writing as Sharon St.George, signing books at Redding’s Barnes and Noble yesterday, Saturday, August 6.
The signing was for the third book in the series, Breach of Ethics. The fourth book in the series is due out next spring.
Guess what I saw at Barnes & Noble this afternoon?
