This reading series is sponsored by Poets & Writers, through a grant from the James Irvine Foundation; additional support provided by Tenacity Press, Art Center Ukiah, and an anonymous local writer.

A little history: Writers Read, founded by Susan Sparrow and Hal Zina Bennett of Tenacity Press, has been happening monthly on the last Thursday of the month since 1999 in Ukiah, California, starting at the Emerald Cafe, moving to the Saturday Afternoon Club, then to Colored Horse Studios for five years (2004-2009) and as of 2009, back almost full-circle to Art Center Ukiah’s annex, which is next door to the former location of the Emerald Cafe.
