California Poet Laureate Visits Mono County Schools

Just received pictures from last Tuesday, May 15, at the Edison Theatre in Mammoth Lakes when Dana Gioia, California Poet Laureate, visited Mono County. He invited three of us California Poets in the Schools poets to read/recite our own poems before he recited his. He also spoke about poetry--how long people have been making it all over the world, its "value," how it is taught and received--and he led a Q & A with the community audience. Thanks, Dana!
