TAG and the Topanga Library co-present the Loose Lips Poetry Series with featured poet Marsha de la O. She is the author of two award-winning books and the recipient of The 2015 Isabella Gardner Poetry Award. De la O lives in Ventura, California, with her husband, poet and editor Phil Taggart. Together, they produce poetry readings and events in Ventura County and are also the editors and publishers of the literary journal Askew.
Curated by Millicent Borges-Accardi and Jean Colonomos, Loose Lips is dedicated to bringing a diverse array of the best contemporary poets to Topanga, providing audiences and authors with a poetic forum and community, and to delivering literary events that are edgy, spiritual, inspiring, and at times irreverent. Refreshments provided by Friends of the Topanga Library. The featured poet will be followed by an open mic.
