Cafe Sounds at the Library, July 27, 2013

Picture a lazy summer afternoon with a cool comfortable spot, soft music, a little poetry, and a good book. Then picture yourself relaxing this Saturday, July 27, in the Sierra Madre Public Library with Saturday Afternoon Café Sounds at 4:00 p.m.

Chill to light acoustic music with the Summer Reading Program theme of Reading is So Delicious! The programs will feature a spoken word artist traci kato-kiriyama and musician Liane Tominaga.

traci kato-kiriyama is a multi-disciplinary performing artist, writer, and actor who's been touring the country since 1996 through shows, theatre collaborations, performance tours, speaking and teaching engagements. She is the co-founder and director of Tuesday Night Project, a grassroots group that builds "art+community" initiatives.

Liane Tominaga has knack for penning songs that soak in life's every moment of triumph and sorrow. Her genuine and timeless lyrics ride on the tails of catchy pop melodies and her music compares to Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat and James Taylor for her guitar work and pure and soulful vocals. Liane is working on a new album.

The Sierra Madre Public Library is located at 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in the city of Sierra Madre, 91024, (626) 355-7186, www.cityofsierramadre.com.
