Discover danger, love, loss, romance in poets’ words

Bill Gainer, Todd Cirillo, Julie Valin and Chris Olander – all well-known local poets – present “Four Ways to Heartbreak,” an evening of danger, love, loss, romance, deceit and heartbreak without regret tonight, 7:30, at Off Center Stage, 315 Richardson St., Grass Valley, as part of The Nevada County Poetry Series. Nationally published Bill Gainer is known for the openness of his confessional poetry and is recognized as one of the founding contributors to the modern movement of “after hours” poetry. Julie Valin is co-publisher of Six Ft. Swells Press and her chapbook, “Night Songs for Heavy Dreamers.” Todd Cirillo, co-founder, editor, publisher and “buyer of the next round” of Six Ft. Swells Press, has authored three chapbooks. Chris Olander blends performance techniques with spoken word to create an “action art poetry.” His book, “December Birds Poems,” remains an underground phenomenon. Tickets at the door are $5 general/seniors/students, $1 under 18. Call (530) 432-8196 or 274-8384 for more information.
