March Reading Series at The Leslie Jean Porter Gallery

On March 22nd I have the honor to present three extremely talented visual artists and poets hailing from Joshua Tree. Susan Abbott and Cynthia Anderson will present their collaborative book Now Voyager with artwork from Abbott and poems from Cynthia. My third presenter is Noreen Lawlor who is herself a visual artist and poet. It should be an exciting program. The readings begin at two. The gallery is located at 68-733 Perez Rd. C28, Cathedral City. And as always, an open mic is included. Come for a salon Sunday at Leslie’s! And your humble host: moi
