December Report: A Holiday Special

Last night’s reading featured Nils Peterson, our Santa Clara County Poet Laureate. Nils continued his December tradition of holiday stories and poems. In one highlight, Nils was joined by Sally Aston, Kelly Cressio-Moeller, and PCSJ chief, Kevin Arnold in presenting Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Whales.”

Always a fabulous reader, Nils thoughtful selections and sparkling delivery made him our perfect–albeit slim, tall, and beardless—poetry Santa. The resulting good cheer was abundantly apparent in the open-mic readers, many of whom contributed to the holiday theme.

Also, Harry Lafnear made the first public announcement of this Willow Glen Poetry Project.

The evening was hosted in very fine fashion by Kelly, temporarily filling in for Dennis and Christine Richardson.
