Voices from Around the World: A December favorite poems reading!

We live in a remarkable county made more remarkable by the wonderful diversity of the people who live here. In celebration of the many peoples who make up the people of Santa Clara County, I’m  bringing together a group of readers who will share a favorite poem in their native language as well as in English. We’ll get to enjoy both music and meaning. What fun! I hope you can be a part of this memorable evening.

Poems will be read in Urdu, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Swedish, Farsi, Italian, and Vietnamese. I’m so excited and very proud to present

A December Favorite Poems Reading:
Thursday, December 6 at 7pm
Stevens Creek Barnes&Noble,
3600 Stevens Creek Blvd., San Jose

In partnership with Barnes&Noble, a portion of book purchases made that evening and online using our Book Faire code will benefit The Hub!, a drop-in center offering guidance, support, and social services to current & former foster youth, ages 15-24. There will also be recommended books for purchase to sign and donate to The Hub. What a wonderful way to celebrate the season of giving.
