Robert Sward at Gabriella Cafe


Tue, 09/03/2013 - 19:00

Besides being on a first-name basis with every poet from San Luis Obispo to Bolinas, the editor of Hilltromper's Outdoor Poet is an accomplished writer who has published many volumes of verse and established his voice as one of the best-known on the Central Coast. Deceptively casual, often funny, Robert Sward's poems plumb emotional depths, exploring timeless themes like love, loyalty and mortality with imagination and compassion. Tonight he reads at the monthly literary salon hosted by Gabriella Cafe—always an intimate, jolly, well-attended affair. We advise making reservations.

Gabriella Cafe, 910 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. 831.457.1677. 7pm.
