Poets Announce “PEOM”

PEOM (Poetry Every Other Month) is a purposeful misspelling and a new poetry project starting this month at Julie’s Coffee and Tea, 1223 Park St. Every other month a local poet will be the featured reader with an open mic to follow. In addition to a night of fine verse, attendees can sample the latest imbibements and delectables. 

The October featured reader is Amos White, Alameda haikuist, activist and leader. White will begin reading at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24. Then in December, Alameda Poet Laureate Gene Kahane will share his writing. Additional poets and dates shall be announced in the weeks ahead.
