This Weekend

So much:

FRIDAY: May 30, at Golden West College in Huntington Beach, in Community Room 102, TEBOT BACH presents poets JUDITH TERZI and LUCY GALLOWAY at Golden West College on Friday May 30th at 8 PM. Open reading sign up at 7:30 PM. ~FREE~

A Brief History of Tebot Bach (from their website):
In Welsh the name means "little teapot." It was chosen because the teapot is central to the spirit of community life in Wales, a community spirit that infuses the work of Tebot Bach. As a footnote, and of note to an organization about the written and spoken word, the name also has a delightful musicality. In October 1999, founding board members Mifanwy Kaiser and Mark Bergendahl elected to incorporate Orange County’s first nonprofit public benefit corporation dedicated to the support and promotion of strong community, literacy and personal growth through the art of poetry. Since its beginning, Tebot Bach has gained regional and national recognition as a publisher, as the producer of a poetry reading and writing series, and as the host of a poetry workshop series.
