It will feature the writers, artists and the arts of the Harlem Renaissance
~for more introduction to the poet's conflicted stay in Carmel please see Monterey County weekly, Paul Wilner, July 5, 2018:
"The cottage, called Ennisfree - named for a verse by the poet William Butler Yeats - was located on the corner of Thirteenth Street and Carmelo, and it came with free groceries, utilities and a cook. Hughes was accompanied by Sullivan's German shepherd, Greta, named for the reclusive actress Greta Garbo, who often took shelter in Carmel."
