Join us at 2:30 pm on Saturday, July 6th at our new venue in the east bay to bask in the poetics of Jessica Baran, Susan Scarlata, and Bronwen Tate.  We anticipate a sunny and warm Oakland afternoon that will make a garden reading a lovely way to embrace our newly relocated Lone Glen home.  We contend that this space is much more palatable than the last because almost everyone can appreciate an 1890s Victorian and hovering redwood trees (growing so far away from Mission hipsterville, no less).  Please consider donating a beverage or snack IF you have the means, and most definitely bring along some art loving companions!  We will have some wine and whatnots for you, too.  Find us at 3132 Harrison Street 94611, near Lake Merritt, about a mile from BART (or enjoy fairly easy parking).  Here are more details about these inspiring poets:
