LAGUNA BEACH, CA – On Sunday, September 15 at 4 pm, Laguna Beach Books is pleased to welcome local poet Patty Seyburn to the store. Patty will be discussing and signing copies of her most recent book, Threshold Delivery. There is no charge for this event. Light appetizers and beverages will be served. The book can be purchased online or in store.


In Threshold Delivery, poems range from short personal meditations and anecdotal narratives to associative flights of imagination and winding explorations, replete with historical oddities and popular culture. Densely musical and voice driven, poems take the reader on journeys through personal and family history, mapping the movement of the heart and mind through life’s most challenging moments. A series of poems, on the surface about Mah Jongg, look at interweaving cultural histories and how the social world affects our behavior, while asking us to consider what we inherit, what we bring with, and what we pass down, as we “draw and discard.”
