In conjuction with the Folsom Arts and Humanities Month, the Central Valley Haiku Club will be holding a reading featuring haiku, senryu, tanka, and haibun.  The reading will take place on Saturday, October 27, 2012, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at the Gekkeikan Sake Factory, 1336 Sibley Street, Folsom California.  After the reading, there will be an open mic session whereby the audience is invited to share their poems (does not have to be haiku).  Backdropped by a beautiful Japanese garden and koi-filled pond, the sake factory is the perfect setting in which to share our poems.  Please join us.  We'll be happy to see you.  -- Yvonne
