Poets share truths, tender moments

“Two Sides of the Heart,” says Bill Gainer, founder of the Nevada County Poetry Series, will be “an evening of bold exploration and sensual suggestion. Expect to be surprised.”

Two local poets, Will Staple and Noel Kroeplin, will read tonight, starting at 7:30, at Grass Valley’s Off Center Stage.

Staple has received international recognition for his work: it’s been translated from English into three languages; he received the Engpol Median International Award; and he traveled to Switzerland in 2000 to read at a prestigious festival there.

He says, “Poets … are thieves who give everything away, guilty of both miracles and wondrous crimes – liars who always tell the truth.”

Noel Kroeplin says she’s an observer of things big and small and a lover of tender moments. Her Pisces moon may influence her being in touch with reality. “Noel,” she says, “is simply Noel, she likes dirt …”

Purchase tickets at the door – $5 for general admission, seniors and students and $1 for those under 18. Refreshments and an open mic are included.

The theater is located at 315 Richardson St., behind The Center for the Arts.
