Our July 14 reading included a wonderful group of readers with a broad spectrum of styles. The effervescent Tarn Wilson(photograph above), the avian Tracy Guzman, and the amazing Peg Alford Purcell, whose Sausalito reading series – Why There Are Words has expanded to several places throughout the U.S., and Phyllis Cline, who rarely comes out to share her piquant style of poetry. The reading included our own Jean Znidarsic reading from the Dystrumpian Almanac – advice from the past on surviving the new Middle Ages, artist Rose of the Gallery House, and Esther Kamkar, who has written a number of books and has also contributed to the Dystrumpian Almanac. Also present in the gallery were notable local poets Charlotte Muse and Patrick Daly, the curators of the Not Yet Dead Poets monthly Redwood City reading series at the Main Street Gallery. We are very grateful to all of our writers and artists, and all who attended and helped set up and clean up. Without you, Peninsula Literary would just be Carrie and Jean having a glass of wine and talking about writing. Check back shortly for details on our October reading.
