Welcome Ceremony Write Up in Penninsula Press

Welcome Ceremony Write Up in Penninsula Press

The Peninsula Press, an online project of the Stanford graduate program in journalism, follows events in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. I had the good fortune to meet the writer with the Cupertino “beat” at my welcome ceremony, November 10. Kasia Grobelny wrote a lovely article and took some great photos. Enjoy them at this link.

Nice Article About Welcome Ceremony

Thanks to Crystal Tai for this nice write up about the Welcome Ceremony in Cupertino Patch. Several fun photos of me, David Denny, and the mayor.

You can read about Dave Denny’s first poetry reading, October 2011, when he was Cupertino’s Poet Laureate, in another Patch article with even more photos. There’s a lot of nice history of the CupPL project in Cupertino Patch.

Cupertino Poet Laureate Welcome Ceremony

Cupertino Poet Laureate Welcome Ceremony

Last Sunday, November 10, 2013, I was feted, celebrated, honored, embarrassed, surprised, crowned, and genuinely moved by the welcome ceremony the city held in my honor. Here are some photos of the event. (I’m still getting used to this blog format, so pardon me if my posts are bumpy for a while.) This is me, with my gorgeous laurel wreath, courtesy of Anne and Ron Miller, and Erica Goss, current Poet Laureate of Los Gatos.
