Monterey Bay Poetry Consortium: Readings by Bill Minor and Lauren Crux
This event has already passed
On the second Sunday of each month, come to Old Capitol Books to see the poets of the Monterey Bay Poetry Consortium. This afternoon's featured poets are Bill Minor and Lauren Crux, who will read from their work. There is a suggested donation of $5.
William Minor was originally trained as a visual artist and exhibited woodcut prints and paintings at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and other museums and galleries. He began to write his own poetry as a graduate student in Language Arts at San Francisco State, producing his first book containing poems and woodcut prints, Pacific Grove, in 1974. Bill has, since that time, published six more books of poetry—most recently Gypsy Wisdom: New & Selected Poems and Another Morning: Poems by William Minor.
Lauren Crux's poetry, prose and photography have been published in Brevity, Ruminate, Rappahannock Review, The Colorado Review, Trivia, the Scribbler, Fourth Genre, Poetry Flash, phren-Z, as well as numerous other journals and anthologies. As a performance artist she has written, produced, and performed five full-length monologues, numerous short works, and several community based collaborative art performances. She has recently completed a prose poem manuscript entitled, Little Rambles, This is a love letter, after all.
