Poetry Matters announces a special event, the December 18 celebration of its three year anniversary. This event also marks the debut of a new chapbook, But Who’s Counting. Editor Lorine Parks has collected a poem from each of the featured poets who have come to read in Downey over the last eighteen months in The Rives Mansion, Epic Lounge and for the past year at Stay Gallery.
Sure to be a collector’s item, But Who’s Counting is filled with some of the best in contemporary Southern California poetry. The Downey Arts Coalition has sponsored the publication of this book, and four of the eighteen poets are Downey residents.
A number of the featured poets will be here in person to read their poems in this gala launch.
