Dear Poets and Poetry Lovers:

I saw an article two  summer's ago in an issue of Poets & Writers Magazine about an event at Beyond Baroque in Venice entitled "Cultures Connect In Los Angeles".  I thought it would be great if San Diego Writers, Ink sponsored a sister event.  So I approached Executive Director Kristen Fogle and asked if this designed for community nonprofit, founded by my hero Judy Reeves, would be willing to sponsor a similar evening.  Kristen didn't hesitate and gave a resounding yes.

Then Kristen wrote to Poets and Writers while I contacted Beyond Baroque and the ball was rolling.  Poets & Writers held an in-service about the importance of such an event.  At the end of the workshop, Michael Klam, and Ted Washington said they would help stage the event.  Michael arranged for us to bring the poets to the San Diego Art Institute and created the below artful flyer. Ted said he'd be willing to read his poetry.  

Now Michael Klam and I are co-hosting Cultures Connect in San Diego II.  If Quincy was still in town he'd give us his blessing on this event.   You will be amazed in the spirit of how America is not a melting pot, its a mosaic.  This evening's mosaic will be in the strongest language of the heart.

See you on April 12, 2019 at 7:00 P.M.
