3 poets featured at latest reading of the Nevada County Poetry Series

Tonight at 7:30, three poets will read for the Nevada County Poetry Series. Penn Valley resident Laura Pendell’s poems have appeared in such journals and magazines as Limestone 2005, the Nevada County Poetry Series Anthology 2004 and several online poetry Web sites. She also performs with her husband, Dale, in Oracular Madness, an improvisational music group that has been at the “Mind States Conference” and is known to show up regularly at Burning Man.

Poet Brigit Truex, when not writing poetry or working on regalia, beadwork or crafts, can usually be found at powwows around the region where she practices the art of Northern Traditional Dance. Truex says, “These interests are vital and central to my being. They ground me.” Truex’s work has appeared in Folio, Rattlesnake Review, PDQ, Perspectives and the Manzanita.

A Davis resident, James Lee Jobe is a former DJ on a Sacramento rock radio station, the past editor and publisher of poetry monthly One Dog Press (1990-1994) and the editor of the quarterly Clan of the Dog. He has been published in such periodicals as Manzanita, Tule Review and Pearl. His poems have been included in “The Sacramento Anthology: One Hundred Poems; Jewel of the Valley: A California Anthology.” Jobe has four chapbooks published, the most recent titled “What God Said When She Finally Answered.”

Purchase tickets at the door for $5 general admission, seniors and students, and $1 for those under 18. Refreshments and open mic included. The show will be at the Off Center Stage, 315 Richardson St., Grass Valley (behind The Center for the Arts). Call 432-8196 or 274-8384 for more information.
