Welcome to the Moon Tide monthly events calendar.
Lee Mallory's Farewell to the O.C. Spectacular
Where: Gypsy Den, 125 N. Broadway, Santa Ana
When: 8 p.m. May 7
Why you should go: Lee Mallory, one of Southern California's great poetry promoters of the last quarter-century, will go out in style (one imagines) with a farewell reading extravaganza at the site of one of his longtime readings. Moon Tide publisher Michael Miller and musician Courtney Montgomery will offer support, while Jaimes Palacio will host.
Sharon Venezio reads from The Silence of Doorways
Where: Santa Catalina Branch, Pasadena Public Library, 999 E. Washington Blvd., Pasadena
When: 3 p.m. May 18
Why you should go: Sharon's book, the latest from Moon Tide, was recently featured in a KCET story. Come see a hot SoCal poet in action.
