Hear poet laureate candidates

LAKE COUNTY – There are two upcoming opportunities in which community members can hear the applicants for Lake County Poet Laureate 2008-10 read their work.

The hopefuls are Linda Drew, Tom Hardy, Pauline Denise Keil-Stocker and Mary McMillan.


The first is at the opening of the Feb. 24 Poetry and Music Interlude, at the Lake County Arts Council's Main Street Gallery, 325 N. Main St., Lakeport.

The event starts at 3 p.m. and ends 6 p.m. Some or all of the five judges of applicants' work will be present.

After those readings, the Poetry and Music Interlude will proceed as usual as an open mic for writers and musicians, hosted by Lorna Sue Sides. Bring light refreshments if you can.


The second opportunity is at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 2, also at the Main Street Gallery.

At that event, the new poet laureate will be introduced.

After an introduction by the outgoing poet laureate and outline of the duties/ expectations/ creativity/ communications involved, the new poet laureate will read and there will be refreshments.

There is no need to RSVP, just come and bring as many others as possible to welcome and encourage the new poet laureate.
