Nevada County Poetry Series presents JoAnn Anglin and Beverly Korenwaser

The Nevada County Poetry Series will bring two of the region’s notable writers, JoAnn Anglin and Beverly Korenwaser, to the stage tonight at The Center for the Arts.

“Anglin’s and Korenwaser’s words touch softly a world on edge,” said NCPS board member Bill Gainer. “They remind us that the gifts are within and that the best of the giving is with an open heart. Anglin and Korenwaser know what love is and embrace its sharing.”

JoAnn Anglin lives in Sacramento, where she writes about humans in nature, the nature of humans and related developments. She has worked as a poet in the schools and has written articles on poetry and on the arts in general. She is active with Los Escritores del Nuevo Sol / Writers of the New Sun and belongs to the Sacramento Poetry Center.

Her poems have appeared in Poetry Now, Rattlesnake Review, The Pagan Muse, 100 Poems about Sacramento and several anthologies. She has co-hosted poetry series in Sacramento and been a featured poet at varied Northern California poetry readings. Anglin’s chapbook, “Words Like Knives, Like Feathers,” was published by Rattlesnake Press. She is currently working on poems for a new collection to be called, “How Much Did You Pay For That?”

Beverly Korenwaser works in many realms of the creative world: Writer, editor, musician and poet. She is a past Artistic Director of the Sangeet School of World Music and editor of USC’s School of Cinema-TV Newsletter.

Her poetry has been featured in the Isadora Duncan New York Company’s “Artistic Movement: A Celebration of Isadora Duncan” and at the Women’s Writers Salon in Grass Valley. Her numerous articles and interviews about the fusion of jazz and art have appeared in the Journals of the International Association for Jazz Education.

Korenwaser has recently completed writing several articles and curating the Performing Arts Jazz Series for the Mondavi Center in Davis. Her poetry is forthcoming in “The Cafe Writer’s Anthology – 2010.”
