Many of these kids have pursued higher education. Elaine also writes songs, sings and plays a mean guitar as Dusty Miller. This reading series by our LEFT COAST WRITERS® always provides us with such a treat, whether it is our poets sharing their truth-filled pieces, writers making us laugh or cry or pause with deep reflection as they read their short stories, memoirs or erotica-filled prose.
