Four Sonoma County authors will each offer their own unique, compelling and masterfully articulated poetry and prose in a wide range of genre: history, murder mystery, romance and humor.

David Beckman is a novelist, poet and playwright. He is a 2012 nominee for the Pushcart Poetry Prize. His plays have been produced from New York to Santa Monica to Santa Rosa to Monte Rio. His play, Being Walt Whitman, was staged at 6th Street Playhouse. His novel Under Pegasus was published in 1996.

Jonah Raskin was a Fulbright Professor in Belgium and has authored 12 books, and 6 chapbooks of poetry. His newest book, James McGrath: In a Class by Himself, will be published this summer. His essays and reviews have been published in The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Brooklyn Rail, The Redwood Coast Review, and The Press Democrat. He retired last year as the chairman of the Communication Department at Sonoma State University.

Waights Taylor Jr. is the author of Our Southern Home. The book was published in 2011 and was selected out of a field of 5,000 publications for a Silver Medal by the Independent Publisher. The award was presented in New York City in June of this year. Waights' publishing credits include short stories, poetry, and plays.

Armando Garcia-Dávila was the Literary Laureate of Healdsburg 2000–2002. His poetry and short stories have been published in numerous Spanish and English publications. A one-act play, Love at First Sight, was presented earlier this year. He has read from his works on local and national radio. Currently he is working with an editor on a novel based on a cross-country motorcycle trip he made in 1968.
