On 15 October I presented the instigators of four current or upcoming literary events in Nevada County.
I first talked with Nevada City resident and United Methodist minister Sharon Delgado about her recent book Shaking the Gates of Hell: Faith-Led Resistance to Corporate Globalization (AugsburgFortress). She will host a book release gathering at the Book Seller in Grass Valley at 3 PM on Wednesday 24 October.
I then talked with Nevada County actor and playwright Gary Wright about his play Evermore, which covers the last eight years of Edgar Allan Poe's life. The Foothill Theatre Company's world premiere production is playing at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City from now until 27 October.
I then talked with Nevada County poet Molly Fisk, co-editor with poet Steve Sanfield and former Nevada County Librarian Steve Fjelsted of Open to All: What the Library Means to Me, which has just been published for the Nevada County Library Foundation by Comstock Bonanza Press. A book release party featuring at least 14 readings from the book will take place at 7 PM on Friday 26 October in the Community Room of the Madelyn Helling Library.
Poet Chris Olander, who joined in the previous discussion, then gave a quick rundown on the Nevada County Poetry Series 50th birthday celebration of Jack Kerouac's On the Road, which will take place at 7:30 PM on Thursday 18 October at the Off-Center Stage of the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley.
