Culver City’s Centennial Poetry Collection
Culver City completed its one-year centennial celebration on September 20, 2017, exactly 100 years from the day Harry Culver received his City Charter. Paul Jacobs, former mayor and President of the Centennial Celebration Committee, said that during the year we all searched for words which could describe the pride and enjoyment we have experienced living in and visiting Culver City. The Centennial Poetry Contest organized by Culver City’s Honorary Artist Laureate for Poetry, Dr. Janet Hoult, who is the editor of this book, provided an opportunity to articulate our feelings in poetic form which simple words could not. This collection pays tribute to Culver City through the writing and reflections of its citizens and visitors and conveys a sense of pride and love for the city. Biographies and additional information from the Culver City Historical Society about Culver City makes this a special keepsake.
