Village Lights Poetry Café


Pablo Neruda: A Poet of the People
Nobel Prize winner, poet, diplomat, and casualty of Pinochet.
Gabriel García Márquez called him “the greatest poet of the 20th century.”


Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. — Carl Sandburg
Poetry lies its way to the truth. — John Ciardi
If you want to annoy a poet, explain his poetry. — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

In a relaxed, informal setting, Village Lights Poetry Café approaches poetry one poet at a time. The artistry of each poet is interwoven with their life, their time, and their world. The Café explores this with coffee, insightful conversation, and even a few poems. Recommended reading for this meeting of the Café is The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems from City Lights Books.
