Pump House Poets Society announces May 25 poetry reading

The Pump House Poets Society announces its second public literary reading of the 2012 season. The event will take place at the historic Sedona Pump House on Friday, May 25, 4-6 p.m.

The Sedona Pump House is located east of Creekside Plaza, just south of the Sedona Y on State Route 179, in Sedona. Refreshments will be served.

Poets Nodalone and William Hoshal will be reading their works.

The program will also include a one-hour open-microphone session for additional poets and prose writers.

Monthly readings are held at the Pump House from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the last Friday of each month through October.

All readers are eligible for three prizes, called the Dylan Thomas Awards, for writing quality and oral delivery.

About the Pump

House Poets Society

The Pump House Poets Society was founded by Cynthia Tuck, owner of Ageless Pages (the used bookstore in Sedona); Ann Fabricant, owner of Cocopah North at Creekside; and Cassandra Ward, professor at Northern Arizona University.

The Society was organized to promote an interest in literature in Northern Arizona in general and Sedona in particular.

About the Readers

William Hoshal has been a regionally and nationally published poet and essayist for more than 20 years.

Besides being a writer, William is a musician and painter.

His award-winning music has been featured at jazz festivals and concerts here and abroad.

In 2010 he opened Calling Rain, an art studio and gallery at Old Jerome High School in Jerome.

Nodalone began writing poetry as a child, but he only recently began giving public readings at events throughout Arizona.

Originally from Michigan, he moved to Flagstaff in 2008 to attend Northern Arizona University.

He will complete degrees in both exercise science and psychology in 2012, and he plans to pursue a master's degree in psychology.
