Walking the Walk

Péta Lúuma. Chickaluma. Birthplace of the egg incubator and Mesa/Boogie amplifier. Take off point of the first official airmail flight. Former egg capitol of the world. And home to the Petaluma Poetry Walk, which I will be participating in as a reader on Sunday, September 15, 2013.

Now in its 18th year, the Poetry Walk, founded by Sonoma County poet laureate emeritus Geri Digiorno, includes dozens of poets reading at different venues, all walking distance from each other in this historic Gold Rush town. I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow readers and seeing Petaluma with my own eyes.

It's just about an hour's drive from San Francisco. So if you're thinking about a mid-September getaway—forget Paris, forget Rome—plan for Petaluma and the Poetry Walk!
