Cowboy poets, music coming to the Elks Lodge

Ever heard cowboy poet and former large animal veterinarian Baxter Black recite his humorous, insightful poetry on National Public Radio? A great experience. Who knows where Black – whose book “Coyote Cowboy Poetry” is the biggest selling cowboy poetry book ever – will show up the week of April 16-22, Cowboy Poetry Week, but on the day after (Sunday), a bunch of such poets will show up at the Grass Valley Elks #538 to entertain after supper.

The Stardust Cowboys start playing music – real cowboy music – at 4 p.m.; dinner is at 5 p.m.; the poetry begins at 6 p.m. This whole affair costs a modest $20 at the door.

For more information, go online at or e-mail Dawn Narvaez, lecturing knight and chairman of the event, at To learn more about Cowboy Poetry Week’s schedule around the country, go online at
