Fullerton, CA – An evening of inspiration and cultural enlightenment is promised as the Fullerton Main Library presents, "An Evening of Eight Poets," a showcase of local poets hosted by Jason Fairhurst Wall, a poet himself. The June 24th event will be held at the Osborne Auditorium located inside the Fullerton Public Library at 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., adjacent to City Hall.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for the public to meet the local poets with the showcase starting at 7:00 p.m. With a significant poetry culture in Fullerton, Library Director, Maureen Gebelein commented, “This is a great opportunity for those who have never been to a poetry reading to experience the poetry art form.” “'An Evening with Eight Poets’ is a show for those who enjoy hearing masters of language and inspired thought,” she added.

Poets of many genres including: confessional, existential, devotional and ancestral will perform their inventive artistry which has given them local recognition. 

A Q&A session will wrap up the event and attendees will be encouraged to talk and interact with the local celebrity poets afterwards.
