‘Mamma Mia’ poetry event to be held at Flower Hill


In the spirit of community and in celebration of mothers, the Solana Beach Art Association invites the public to attend an evening of poetry at the Pannikin in Flower Hill Promenade on Thursday, May 10, from 6-7:30 p.m. “Mama Mia” is a free family-friendly event that will showcase local poets of all ages and stages who will wax lyrically and lovingly about the mothers in their lives.

Emceed by Diane Welch, the event is sponsored by the SBAA whose mission in part is to bring the arts to the community and the community to the arts. There will be a complimentary wine and cheese reception; donations are welcome to help fund future events. Laughter, levity, and love will also be on the menu.

Membership into the SBAA, a volunteer run organization – founded by five fabulous moms: Christie Beniston, Sharon Leib, Amber Irwin, Carol Beth Rodriguez and Diane Welch – is open to artists from all disciplines as well as to supporters of the arts. Visit to find out more or to join.
