The Third Thursday Poetry & Jazz Reading Series begins with live improv jazz and an open mic with jazz improv; followed by our featured reader, and concludes with more live jazz.
The Third Thursday Poetry & Jazz Reading Series at Arena Market & Cafe, 185 Main St, Point Arena.
On Thursday, October 17, at 7:30pm The Third Thursday Poetry & Jazz Reading Series will feature Current Ukiah Poet Laureate Roberta Werdinger.
Doors open at 7, band plays at 7:30 pm & reading is at 8 pm. All ages welcome. A small jazz combo plays before and after the reading and generally accompanies the local as well as our featured poets (just about all of them elect to read with the band). The usual audience is comprised of regulars (a mix of young and old, and everything in the middle, as well as reflecting our multi-racial community), visitors from points, north and south of Point Arena, plus the smattering of tourists who just happen to stumble upon us. All of our past readers rave about how attentive, responsive, and open our audiences are.
