The Downey Arts Coalition showcases the poetry of Sharon Alexander for its monthly series, Poetry Matters. Sharon will be present to read some of her poems at the Stay Gallery in Downey on Thursday evening, June 12, 2014.
Born and raised in New York, Sharon Alexander moved to California after one very cold winter in upstate New York. Over the past five years she’s rekindled a lifelong love of poetry and now considers poetry her “day job”. Finishing Line Press released her debut chapbook, Voodoo Trombone, in February 2014.
Sharon currently splits her time living in the Southern California mountain community of Idyllwild and in the desert at the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains east of Palm Springs.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. Come early to sign up for open mic which begins at 7:30 PM before the guest poet’s reading.
Stay Gallery, 11040 Downey Ave., Downey, CA 90241.
Stay Gallery is in the heart of downtown Downey and there are several restaurants that are within easy walking distance from the art gallery.
Reading curated by Lorine Parks.
