Paul Willis Features Thursday in Ventura–see you there!
Join Art Predator and students Thursday December 12 at 7:30pm for a featured reading by Westmont Professor Paul Willis at Foster Library (in the Topping Room) 651 E. Main Street, Ventura CA 93001. Paul is also a former poet laureate of Santa Barbara, host of the annual William Stafford reading, and an avid outdoorsperson.
Phil Taggart hosts and an open mic follows (one poem, no epics!) where my students and I will read from our newly published anthologies. It’s free, but we pass the hat.
Pictured is a broadside I did for the publication of part of my recent commission for the City of Pasadena on water and power. The publication has the whole thing; I read the first part last week (most of what you see here plus another stanza from later in the poem); I’ll read the last third on Thursday.
