Georgina Marie Guardado: Starlight Lounge
August 12, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Lake County Poet Laureate Georgina Marie Guardado will be reading in Willits on Saturday, August 12, at the Willits Community Theatre. An open reading will follow Guardado’s reading. The event will begin at 7:30 P.M.
Georgina Marie Guardado is a very dynamic poet and is deeply involved in the literary life of Lake County and parts beyond, including Mendocino County. Asked to write a thumbnail sketch of herself, Guardado wrote, “I am a writer, poet and the Poet Laureate of Lake County, from 2020 to 2024. I am the first Mexican-American and the youngest to serve in this role. I am also of Mojave descent.
“My work in poetry is very much of the self, of grief, of generational trauma, of longing, and of nature. I aim to bring diversity, inclusivity, and inspiration to my local literary community.”
Entry into this poetry reading is by donation but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. The Willits Community Theatre Playhouse is located at 37 West Van Lane, a block west of Mazahar Clothing Store and a block south of Pizza To Go.
