Lone Glen TWELVE: Poetry in the Basement!

October 14, 2014

We are thrilled to announce our fall installment of the Lone Glen series, featuring poets Genine Lentine and Linda Norton.  Join us at our home on the evening of Saturday, November 8th at 7:30 pm to celebrate inspiring poetry. We are located at 3132 Harrison Street in Oakland; look for the signs directing you through the side entryway that lead to the backyard and basement. Bring a friend and/or a libation to share; bring an open mind. We will provide wine, snacks, and mood lighting. Lone Glen is a quarterly writing, art, and performance series dedicated to promoting more community and support among artists of all disciplines.
