I'm quite pleased that the once-a-month reading that I host at Tarzana's Coffee Junction had a decent opening night (February 15th). Both featured poets (Michael C. Ford and Mark States) did good work, the open readers were uniformly good and there were actually a couple of civilians (nonpoets) in the audience.
Hoping to go onward and upward with the reading and grow the audience a bit more--plus give some neophyte poets the chance for feature exposure.
Stosh Machek (who hosts the Brand Bookstore reading in Glendale) and Theresa Antonia (who hosted readings in Brentwood and Pasadena last year) will be the features on Thursday, March 15th at 7:00 p.m.
