The winning poems have been published in the library’s annual booklet, available at the library, and the winners each receive a gift card to Laguna Beach Books, courtesy of the Friends.

Local poet John Gardiner served as MC, and Laguna Beach musician and artist Gary Hogan provided the sound system as well as the painting that serves as the cover art for this year’s booklet. Seventy-five poets, family, friends, and community members gathered to celebrate the winning poems.
