It’s summer. It’s hot. So very hot. We’re about to make it hotter with two smoldering poets, Victoria Lynne McCoy and Elder Zamora. Join your hosts G. Murray Thomas and me, Sarah Thursday, at Fox Coffeehouse on Monday, July 11th at 7 pm. Sign ups for the open reading list go out at 6:45. Arrive early and get a giant, cold smoothie or blended coffee drink. They also serve incredible sweet and savory bakery items.
RSVP on Facebook. Fox Coffeehouse 437 W. Willow St., Long Beach, CA 90806
