MWP launched Out of the Fire anthology on Saturday, June 17, in conjunction with the Afternoon with Poet Laureate Dana Gioia Event – 12-4 PM at the Angels Camp Museum — the event was Free. Contributors read powerful selections from the book and photographers had spectacular prints for sale. Refreshments were served and no-host wine by the glass, donated by Ironstone Vineyards, one of our sponsors.  Dana Gioia was moved by the readings from those who had experienced the devastating event offering some wise recollections and insights to offer. 

Thank you, Angels Camp Museum & Carriage House for the lovely and historic facility. And thank you to our Calaveras County Librarian for helping to spread the word, another sponsor. Thanks also to the Calaveras Chronicle for a full-page ad and wonderful introduction to the poet by Ross Alford.  Additional thanks to Signal Service for their major sponsorship and support of our organization and facility, and this project.
