October 16, 2015 Reading







Art and Refreshments at Peninsula Literary October 16

We had a great audience for the October reading. Featured readers Lori Ostlund and Jennifer Swanton Brown offered compelling readings.



Lori Ostlund led off, introducing several quirky Midwestern characters from her new novel.


Former Cupertino Poet Laureate Jennifer Swanton Brown captivated with poems she had written on demand at an art festival poetry booth.



Guest readers Renee Schell and Phyllis Butler added texture with poetry and non-fiction, and we heard from a new memoir by Dante Drummond.

And Artist Dorothy Burston Brown discussed her fascinating process for producing sculpture.




Thank you to all of our October readers, and to all who helped set up, tear down, and all who came to join us! 20151016_195737






Peninsula Literary will be on hiatus after this reading, but we’ll be back in summer/fall of 2016.

We hope to see you then!
