• Thursday, May 9th
• 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
• Location is upstairs at Fandango Restaurant located at 223 17th Street in Pacific Grove.
• Join Patrice at Fandango Restaurant for an intimate and rousing reading from “The Knot Untied” followed by conversations about the knots poetry can untie that no other form can. Patrice will discuss the unusual route she took to publish this collection. “The Knot Untied” was published by a community of readers. She developed an Indiegogo campaign that she announced through Facebook, creating a venue for the community to fund her new book. Very quickly, teachers, housewives, musicians, doctors and lawyers came together to make it possible for her new collection of poems “The Knot Untied” to BE published. She will also share her original art from which the book's cover originates.
