In addition to his poetic duties, he heads the Creative Writing department at Santa Barbara City College and hosts Channel 21’s The Creative Community, which Colin profiled in the Indy in 2008. Then, Barney Brantingham drops in to talk about the Santa Barbara Public Library’s adult literacy program, which helps people from all walks of life, including dyslexics and immigrants who need to learn English as a second language, to improve their reading skills.
