West Hollywood Book Fair

Today I'm going to the West Hollywood Book Fair. There are a lot of poetry events that have caught my interest. Among them:

11:30 LITERATI COCKTAIL / POETICDIVERSITY SAMPLER
The Literati Cocktail/Poeticdiversity Sampler showcases the poetry selections offered in Media Cake eMagazine and Poeticdiversity and will feature Holaday Mason, Douglas Richardson, Amelie Frank, and Sabrina Edwards.

1:30 POETRY & ALL THAT JAZZ
A collaboration of poetry and jazz featuring Katerina Canyon and James Maverick with accompanying musicians.

3:00 POEMELEON READS
Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry publishes poems, reviews, interviews, and essays twice per year, with each issue focusing on a different kind of poetry: poetry of place, ekphrastic poetry, poems in form, prose poems, the persona poem, humor, with the October issue focusing on gender (and the current issue devoted to humor). Featuring Jeannine Hall Gailey,Robert Krut, Michelle Bitting,Chella Courington, Ching-In Chen, Paul Lieber (Although, alas, it seems Jeannine has a stomach flu and won't be there).

There are other tracks, too. These look interesting:
