12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Third Sunday Poetry Open Mic, Coffee Catz at Gravenstein Station, 6761 Sebastopol Ave. (Hwy. 12), Sebastopol. Our featured reader is Jean Wong, author of Sleeping with the Gods
, an award winning poet, memoir, and fiction writer. Her work has been produced by the 6th Avenue Playhouse, Petaluma Reader’s Theater, and Off The Page. Jean has been a contributor to Vintage Voices, Synchronized Chaos

One of her poems has been set to music by composer Georg Hajdu and is currently played internationally. She is a recent winner of the Redwood Writer’s short story contest.
