Pump House Poets Society: New group to present first literary reading of 2012

The Pump House Poets Society, a group devoted to promoting an interest in literature in Northern Arizona, will present public readings at the historic Sedona Pump House on Friday, April 27, from 4 to 6 p.m. The Sedona Pumphouse is located east of Creekside Plaza, just south of the Sedona Y on State Route 179, in Sedona, Arizona. Refreshments will be served.

Poets Norberto Cisneros and Mary Heyborne and novelist Randy Fridley will be reading their works. The program will also include a one-hour open-microphone session for additional writers.

This event is the first in a series of monthly readings to be held at the Pump House from 4 to 6 p.m. on the last Friday of each month from April 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.
