POET'S STAGE

LOCATION - THE WORLD STAGE PERFORMANCE GALLERY

POET'S STAGE

The Leimert Park Village Book Fair Poet's Stage is a showcase of some
of the best local and national known poets. The programming is full of
passion, verve, and gifted wordsmiths promoting their books or cd’s.

The Poet's Stage is held at The World Stage Performance Gallery. The
World Stage Performance Gallery was founded in 1989 by the late world
renowned master jazz drummer Billy Higgins and by poet and community
arts activist Kamau Daáood in an attempt to fill a cultural void that
existed in the Los Angeles community.

The Poet's Stage is coordinated by Conney Williams, the Artistic
Director at The World Stage. Conney has been the Poetry Coordinator
for the Leimert Park Village Book Fair for five of its six years. The
2013 Poet's Stage will feature readings throughout the day as well
as panels and writing workshops
