• Poetry Salon Forming: First Event Aug. 3

    “We shall be a mighty kindness” from Rumi’s poem, “Zero Circle,” sets the tone for Poetry in the Grove: A Monthly Poetry Salon meeting Saturday, August 3, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at the little house in Jewell Park. The life and poetry of Rumi will be presented by Pacific Grove’s internationally recognized poet, scholar and Poet in Residence, Dr. Barbara Mossberg. Participants will also have an opportunity to hear poems of the ecstatic poet read in his native language, Persian. This is an interactive forum and you are asked to bring your favorite Rumi poems to share.

    The event will kick off Pacific Grove’s monthly Poetry Salon series offered on the first Saturday of each month at Jewell Park, next to the Pacific Grove Public Library. The salon is a poetry discussion group that will focus on a different poet each month. Participants are invited to contribute by choosing poets to be presented and to share favorite poems by the poet of the month. The September 7th presentation will explore the poetry of Gary Snyder.

    Jewell Park is located on Central Ave between Grand Ave and Forest Ave. The event is free, donations for the PG Library gratefully accepted. Seating limited to 20, call 831-658-0663 to reserve space.
