The public is invited to the Tenth Annual San Lorenzo Valley Poetry Reading on Thursday, April 24 at 7:00 p.m., at the Felton Community Hall (6191 Highway 9) David Swanger, former Santa Cruz County Poet Laureate, will read from his own poetry and then introduce local poets to read original poems he has selected, on the theme of "Sharing," from entries in four age categories.
In addition, favorite poems will be read by Shannon Calden (Principal, SLV Elementary), Teresa Landers (Director, Santa Cruz Public Libraries), Brian Largay (Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, Safe Passages to Schools), Robin Mustatelli (Chief of Staff for Supervisor McPherson), and David Terrazas (Santa Cruz City Council, Library Joint Powers Board).
The reading, described by a previous attendee as "a wonderful, heartwarming event," is free to the public and will include refreshments. It is sponsored by Felton Library Friends, a chapter of the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
