Altadena Library’s Editor/Poet Laureate Says New Poets Will Be Introduced at this Year’s “Poetry & Cookies” Reading

Altadena Library District’s Editor/Poet Laureate Dr. Thelma Reyna has written to remind Altadena Library supporters to attend the upcoming the big, community poetry reading event “Poetry & Cookies” to be held on April 25 from 2 to 4:00 p.m. at the Altadena Senior Center.

“The Altadena Library will provide refreshments for all attendees, and you’ll meet new poets. We’re very excited about this major event,” Dr. Reyna said in her email.

The annual event has been revamped with a new title, new format, and a broader base of published poets. Now called the “Altadena Poetry Review: Anthology 2015″ in this debut year, the anthology will be released to the public this month.

The readings, free to the public, are a community tradition that formally kicks off the release of the annual anthology. Although the anthology itself has been renamed, the community reading event, which annually brings together poetry lovers from across the region, maintains its name in recognition of its literary tradition.

The “Altadena Poetry Review: Anthology 2015″ will be on sale at this event. Poets who wish to do so will be available for autographing their poems in purchased books if requested to do so. The anthology, 180 pages long, the lengthiest annual edition in this program’s history, will be offered at the special event price of $12, including tax. The cover price is $14.95 plus tax.
