“Live Poets Society”

“Live Poets Society”
Lamorinda Arts Council’s Poet Laureate, Amy Glynn, is hosting the monthly Reading Series entitled “Live Poets Society” at Orinda Books 276 Village Square, Orinda. Each month the featured writers will delight guests with a reading of their creative writings.

The guest readers for January 2019 will be Dani Gabriel, Jeremy Benson and Lisa Rosenberg. Dani Gabriel is the author of a forthcoming children’s book (Penny Candy Books), The Woman You Write Poems About (Civil Defense Press) and coauthor of Molotov Mouths (Manic D Press).

Jeremy Benson, the Poet Laureate of Napa Valley, has written novels, short stories, articles, personal essays, stand-up comedy routines, short films, and many letters. Lisa Rosenberg is the author of A Different Physics (winner of the 2017 Red Mountain Poetry Prize).

Every month an amateur youth reader will also be invited to present their writings. When asked why she developed the program, Amy Glynn replied, “To have the audience be immersed in the words and walk out feeling good. The title of the series is a Light-hearted riff on the 80’s movie Dead Poets Society.”

There will be no charge for this event. Further details can be found at
