Thursday 7 pm, May 11. An evening with poets Richard Lloyd and Tito Titus
Richard continues to write poems based on his service in the army during most of the Cold War. He served in Vietnam in 1967-68 with the 101st Airborne and First Cavalry (Airmobile) divisions. He later established Race Relations / Equal Opportunity programs for the Department of Defense, conducting seminars in Thailand and the Presidio of San Francisco. After retiring, he taught high school in Oakland, California, was a counselor in Juvenile Hall, and engaged in various business endeavors. Aside from his daily poetry practice, he pursues his avocation for wood working. He continues to design and reconstruct old buildings using recycled material. He and his wife reside on Marrowstone Island where nature poetry is a daily occurrence.
Pleasure Boat Studio’s Empty Bowl Press recently published Tito’s poetry collection, I can still smile like Errol Flynn. His poems appear in several anthologies, including Poets Unite! (LitFuse 10th Anniversary), Red Light District: 2011 Seattle Erotic Art Festival Literary Anthology, and The Little Red Anthology. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Argus, and Puget Soundings published his social/political satire.
