I honestly never get tired of reading poetry at the heart of my creative community, Viento Y Agua Coffeehouse and Art Gallery. Once again, I have to honor of reading for the Poetry Bleeding reading series hosted by Alan Passman on Saturday, October 3rd, starting at 7 pm. Come out, get a yummy coffee drink or smoothie (my favorite is the vanilla lavender shake), and listen to an evening of local poetry.

I am thrilled to be included in this anthology of Southern California Poets put out by Don Kingfisher Campbell. All the poems had to be under 300 characters, not words, characters, including the title! Fortunately it was a perfect home for my short poem, “How Quiet Kills”. There will be a reading of the anthology poems on September 28th, from 7 to 9 pm, the Donald Wright Auditorium inside the Pasadena Central Library on 285 E. Walnut St. You can find out more about the event and the other 136 poets at the website: spectrumpublishing.blogspot.com. You can also RSVP on Facebook.
“Sarah’s style is like sweet cello strings in autumn” has to be one of the top 5 best compliments I’ve ever received. If you are anywhere near Glendale, join me on Saturday, September 5th with Kenny Copeland at Expressions L.A. from 2 to 4 pm. More details or RSVP on Facebook!
