Poets Laureate "Gathering of California Poets"

Last Wednesday night, there was a rare event -- poets from all over the state of California came in to share what they are doing to promote the literary arts in their communities. Al Young, California Poet Laureate spoke with the body of poets laureate from various locations around the state and encouraged them to pursue their goals. He read from his own work with a stand-up bass performance to accompany his reading. Here, Ukiah Poet Laureate David Smith-Ferri and the Lake County Poet Laureate chat about relevant matters.
