‘Women of Tahoe’ poetry reading Thursday
Suzanne Roberts and June Sylvester Saraceno will be featured at the “Women of Tahoe” poetry reading and book-signing event at the Valhalla Grand Hall at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Roberts is from the South Shore. She authored “Shameless” and “Nothing to You” and recently was named the Next Great Travel Writer by National Geographic Traveler magazine.
Saraceno, who is from Truckee, is the author of “Altars of Ordinary Light,” a collection of poetry that reminds us to enjoy the daily miracles and personal connections that surround us.
A wine reception will follow. Appetizers will be served, and wine will be available by the glass by donation. This event is free and open to the community. Guitarist Terry Easely will play during the reception.
All donations, as well as a portion of book sales, will be donated to the U.S. Forest Service.
The evening also marks the official opening of the 2008 Valhalla Arts, Theatre and Music Festival. For years, Valhalla has been the place for art and culture on the South Shore, featuring live theatrical performances, concerts, book and poetry readings, art events and festivals.
Valhalla is located on the lakeside of Highway 89 in South Lake Tahoe, just past Camp Richardson. For more information, call (530) 541-4974, or go to http://www.valhallatahoe.com.
