Join Stanley Zumbiel and JoAnn Anglin for an afternoon of poetry that will explore the human condition, truth, and memory. Stanley Zumbiel taught English in middle and high school for thirty-five years and has had a hand in raising four children, yet doesn’t have the slightest idea how he got to be old. He wrote his first poem in 1967 while serving in the Navy. Previously his poems have appeared in Poet News, Nimrod, The Suisun Valley Review, Primal Urge, Off Channel, Medusa’s Kitchen, Convergence and the Sacramento Anthology Late Peaches. In 2008 he received his MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. He continues to write in his Fair Oaks home that he shares with Lynn, his wife of twenty-nine years. JoAnn Anglin has been active with and inspired by Los Escritores del Nuevo Sol/Writers of the New Sun since its beginnings 20 years ago. She has had poems published in several anthologies and literary journals, and has been a featured reader at many poetry venues, e.g., libraries, nature centers, clubs, churches, cafés, and museums. A member of California Poets in the Schools and the Sacramento Poetry Center, she has taught poetry writing in schools, at a Senior Home, and currently at Folsom State Prison. A coach for the Poetry Out Loud program and the current coordinator of the Writers of the New Sun, JoAnn has received District Arts Awards from Sacramento City and County. The Mosaic of Voices reading series is hosted by Nancy Aidé González. The Mosaic of Voices reading series is supported by the Sacramento Poetry Center. The series promotes an appreciation and understanding of contemporary poetry in a wide array of forms and styles. The series goal is to bring together poets, scholars, students, and the public for purposes of establishing strong links with the community through the dynamic vehicle of poetry. It is a showcase for Northern California poets to share their work. Please bring a poem to share on the open mic.
