Mark Your Calendar for a Special Autism Awareness Event

facilities_img2I am proud to announce that I will be a featured reader at the Sixth Annual Benefit for Autism Research sponsored by the Sacramento Poetry Center.  The event will take place on April 13, 2015, at the U.C. Davis MIND Institute in Sacramento, California. Art walk and reception begin at 6:30 p.m.; featured readings will follow.

I can’t tell you how honored and excited I am to be included in this amazing autism awareness event. I attended both undergraduate and graduate school at the University of California, Davis. Returning to my alma mater to read my prose and poetry will be a humbling and mind-blowing experience. In addition, the MIND Institute is a cause I feel extremely passionate about. If you’ve never heard of it, this place ROCKS!

The roster of featured writers and poets for the event is incredible. So much talent! If you can make it up to Sacramento on April 13th, please do. You won’t regret it. This will be a fabulous evening on so many levels.

The event is free and open to the public, although donations will be gratefully accepted. The MIND Institute is located at 2825 50th St., Sacramento, CA, 95817. For more information, call 916-703-0280 or visit their website.

I hope to see you there.

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
