Readers and writers of poetry will have the opportunity to share favorites at a special reading Wednesday 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Sacramento Room of the Central Library, 828 I Street.
The event will feature invited readers, including The Bee's Marcus Crowder and Carlos Alcala. Other readers are KXJZ's Jeffrey Callison, Clare Ellis of the Sacramento Room, Richard Hansen of the Book Collector and others.
The event is hosted by the Sacramento Poetry Center's Mary Zeppa and Bob Stanley.
Members of the public will also have an opportunity to read for a maximum of five minutes on a first-come, first-served basis. Readers are asked not to read their own poems, but to bring favorites by other writers.
There is no charge for the event.
