Some June Events and a Contest

Summer is just around the corner (or is it?), and the valley writing scene, at least, is heating up! There is lots to read, hear and do in the coming weeks, so don't miss out!

William O’Daly and Peter Ludwin Read Their Work
Thursday, June 17, 2010, 8:00 p.m., Free
John Natsoulas Gallery
521 1st Street
Davis, CA 95616
On this evening celebrating Peter Ludwin and his work, William O’Daly takes great pleasure in opening for his friend and fellow poet, as Peter completes the final leg of his northern California tour. The dynamic host, the inimitable Andy Jones, a fine poet himself, knows how to put on a reading, and he has selected the beautiful, people-friendly John Natsoulas Gallery for this special event. It would be a delight to see you there, and if you are not familiar with the gallery, come treat yourself and bring a friend or two. An open mic follows the featured readers.
