We are happy to announce that after a summer break we will resume our last Thursday poetry series. We will meet on Thursday, August 25, at 7PM at the Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah. The featured reader will be Lake County poet laureate Georgina Marie Guardado.
Guardado is the Poet Laureate of Lake County for 2020-2024, and a Poets Laureate Fellow with The Academy of American Poets. She is the Poetry Out Loud and Inaugural Youth Poet Laureate Program Coordinator for the Lake County Arts Council, and Literary Editor for The Bloom. She is a contributing writer for Antioch University’s Common Thread News, and the Literacy Program Coordinator for the Lake County Library. Her work has appeared in The Bloom, Noyo Review, Poets.org, Humble Pie Magazine, Gulf Coast Journal, Yellow Medicine Review, and Muleskinner Review, and is forthcoming in Colossus: Freedom and Two Hawks Quarterly. She lives with her rescue dogs Kenya and Micco and her formerly feral cat Mistie, and is currently working on her full-length poetry manuscript, The Length of Trauma Covets.
Open mic session will follow the featured reading. Maximum time for each reader is six minutes.
We continue to strongly recommend that you do not attend unless fully vaccinated. Masking while indoors is also recommended.
