Description:

Chryss Yost, Santa Barbara poet laureate, reads from her collection of work Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 4 p.m. in Hieronymus Lounge at Westmont’s Kerrwood Hall. The reading, part of the Westmont Reading Series that began last spring with novelist Ron Hansen, is free and open to the public. The event is supported by Poets & Writers Inc. through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation.

“Chryss Yost brings youth and freshness and piquancy to some of the oldest and most formal structures of poetry,” says Paul Willis, Westmont English professor and former Santa Barbara poet laureate. “Her poems are full of swift surprises; she and her work are as dynamic as they come.”
