Dear Literary Folk,

It’s relatively quiet on the lit front this holiday season, as a year replete with public readings and new books by local authors draws to a close. Meanwhile, many of the ongoing open mics are still happening in December all over the county (but do call or email first to be sure). There’s a poetry slam at the Glaser Center on December 6, and 100 Thousand Poets for Change will be presenting at Gaia’s restaurant on the 7th.

I was saddened to learn that Guerneville’s River Reader book store has closed and really sorry to have missed the “wake” last month because I heard it was a great party. Many thanks to Susan Ryan for her support of local authors and readers. I know my friends up river will sorely miss River Reader.  It was also home to Mike Tuggle’s monthly Saturday open mic, which is temporarily taking place at Main Street Station on December 15, 11 a.m.

Please read Bill Vartnaw’s post for details on the Eugene Ruggle memorial reading Sunday evening in Cotati. Even if you have to swim to the Redwood Café (or especially if you do), it will be an exciting evening.

Wishing all of you a happy holiday with friends and family and a creative new year,

Jo-Anne Rosen
