Join us every third Thursday for POETRY MATTERS, a monthly event featuring the best in contemporary Southern California poetry. Local poets welcomes at the open mic session, doors open at 7:00p.

It's March madness, and in Downey poets turn to thoughts of spring, St. Patrick's Day, Pisces, Aries and the Ides. What poems will our poets bring to the Open Mike? Come share the evening with us, and enjoy the fabulous Roy Shabla's presentation of his poetry with live music and colorful graphics by DAC founder Andrew Wahlquist.

Open to the public. All ages welcome.
