Poetry Series

November 18, 2018


Meeting the third Sunday of the month at 2pm, The Davis Arts Center Poetry Series typically features two readers. Admission is free but donations are always appreciated and all proceeds benefit Davis Arts Center! The Series is hosted by James Lee Jobe. Audio archives of previous readings can be found here.

Due to the smoke conditions, the November reading has been cancelled.

The November reading will feature Lucille Lang Day, Stephen Meadows, Susan Kelly-DeWitt and Joshua McKinney.  Each will be reading from the recently published anthology Fire and Rain:  Ecopoetry of California.  There will also be an open mic opportunity for you to present during the reading.
