Fall SGV Poetry Showcase



On Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 at 6pm the South El Monte Library and the Nuvein Foundation welcome the Emerging Urban Poets Group out of Pasadena, CA for a poetry showcase at the S. El Monte Library Adult Book Club meeting. The Emerging Urban Poets gather regularly for poetry readings, workshops, as well as serve as a network of encouraging fellow writers and artists that host a variety of events and programs at schools, the local community, and abroad. The group’s members have all respectively been featured in several books and anthologies of poetry, and publish their own works as part of the San Gabriel Valley Poetry Quarterly publication. Under the leadership of Don Kingfisher Campbell, these poets have also served as inspiration to future generations of young poets, doing readings and workshops at Occidental College and elsewhere.
