Members of the public are also invited to attend a free literary discussion series at the McCarthy Library on the Napa Campus with poet Caroline Goodwin, recently Poet Laureate of San Mateo County.  These focus on the work of each evening’s faculty readers and are held 4:30-5:30, Monday-Wednesday before the weekday faculty readings.
