It's always a pleasure to feature with a master — this Saturday at 7 p.m., I'll read alongside Peggy Dobreer, author of Moon Tide's recent collection In the Lake of Your Bones, at Mystic Journey Bookstore in Venice Beach. The spiritual bookstore at 1319 Abbot Kinney Blvd. is hosting its first-ever Poetry Night, and Laurel Airica and other Venice-area poets will also be on hand to read.
As for Peggy, suffice to say that any poet who recently got a feature in LA Yoga magazine is an ideal choice for a spiritual poetry reading. The event is free and there will be refreshments and plenty of fragrant incense. I recommend getting there with time to spare, as parking in Venice can be tight.
The store asked me to contribute an essay for the Mystic Journey blog, and you can read it here.
