Robin Gabbert, Writers Read Ukiah
September 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Writers Read Ukiah last Thursday poetry series will meet on Thursday, September 28, at 7 PM at the Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah. The featured reader will be Santa Rosa poet Robin Gabbert.
Robin has poems in multiple Redwood Writers Anthologies, California Writers Club Literary Reviews and “The Best Haiku” 2022 International. Her book Diary of a Mad Poet came out in 2020, and a book of ekphrastic poetry—The Clandestine Life of Paintings in Poems—in 2022. Her haiku and tanka appear in Burro in My Kitchen, published by Blue Light Press in 2022, and two of her poems are being published by Moonstone Arts summer 2023. Robin lives in California’s Sonoma County wine country with her husband Con and pup Hamish.
Robin’s reading will include a power point presentation about ekphrastic poetry—poems that respond to works of art.
Open mic session will follow the featured reading. Maximum time for each reader is six minutes. Event will end at 9 PM.
