California Poet Laureate to visit PCC tonight at 7 p.m.

Imagine you did something so well, that folks came to listen or see you do that skill.  Imagine that you were so good at the art or skill that you were paid to share that talent.  Now imagine that your work expressed the sentiments of a large enough pool of people that you were noticed [...]
