Spring Fundraiser in Los Gatos

On Saturday, June 4, 2016, poetry lovers and new poetry learners gathered in the home of California Poets in the Schools board member Guarav Khanna to go "poemcrazy!"

The house party, an invitational to help raise funds for CPitS, included a fine wine tasting, lovely hors d'oeuvres, and a chance to hear poems read by two of Board President John Oliver Simon's students from Claremont Middle School in Oakland.

Check out this link for the live streaming video!

Special Guest Susan Wooldridge, author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words, lead the collected friends, students, teachers, neighbors, board members, and parents in her famous Word Pool exercise. Here's a photo of our word pool!

It was a great afternoon. Here are some of my photos.
