poetry reading, flintridge bookstore and coffeehouse

Here I am with Maja Trochimszyk at a poetry reading in La Canada, CA at the Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse. It was like having a “pop-up” art exhibit with poetry readings. 

I am reading my poems from my Zine that match up with Franny Werthwein’s wet fiber art. I also read poetry that went with my fiber art, one of which is in the photograph on the far left.

The bookstore is an intimate setting to enjoy poetry and art. After I read my poems, several friends shared their poems during the open mic time. There were poets from all over the world!

I am finding that combining poetry with art work brings both to life in new ways. You add live music to the mix and the experience is very rich. I also enjoy the sense of community this brings as the experience is shared by all who attend.
