ALTA-L.A., the Altadena Library's poetry series, returns on Jan. 16 with poets Suzanne Lummis and Neil Aitken.
Suzanne Lummis was recently identified by CBS News as one of the five best poets working in L.A. Neil Aitken is the winner of the 2007 Philip Levine Prize and the founding editor of Boxcar Poetry Review.
Although the library officially closes at 6 PM, it will re-open for the program from 7-8:30 PM. Get there early -- the most recent ALTA-L.A. event drew 90 people.
There will also be an open mic.
This free series is sponsored by the Friends of the Altadena Library District. These events are supported by Poets & Writers, Inc. through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation.
