Poetry and Art: A reading of Ekphrastic poems

Don’t miss this annual Santa Clara County Poet Laureate event sponsored by the San Jose Museum of Art and Poetry Center San Jose. Santa Clara County’s first Laureate, Nils Peterson, began the tradition. I will be this year’s host once more.

Come early and enjoy the museum’s current exhibits, then listen to a selection of poems read that were written by area poets in response to these pieces.

There may still be space in the morning workshop at the museum so that you can try your hand at writing an ekphrastic poem, too.

I hope to see you there~
