Joann C. Roberts, aka “Paradigm”

What an honor to be reading with Joann.  I saw her read at the Auburn Days Festival this last summer.  She was the star of the show!  Her insight and lyrical observations of the shared essence of human life and the universe communicated across the theater and into the hearts of the audience.  The head-nods and applause gave no doubt.  This lady understands ethos and she is not afraid to use it.  This venue seats 80, her words will reach each corner.

Originally from Chicago she is making her rounds in the Northwest, recently featured at Duane Kirby Jensen’s Everett Poetry Night.  Please come out and join us.  Experience poetry!
