Tonight’s Surrey Muse Event is CANCELLED

Please note that the February 23 gathering of Surrey Muse, scheduled for tonight, has been cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions.

We’ll make alternate arrangements to have our featured Author Lydia Kwa, featured Poet Raul Gatica, featured Performer Sherry Duggal, Booksigning Author Ashok Bhargava, and Open Mic Opener Mariam Zohra to present in the near future. Gratitude to Raghavendra Rao K.V. for the Featured Art on this month’s poster.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
