Readings celebrate National Poetry Month

The Union staff

The Nevada County Poetry Series is celebrating National Poetry Month by holding its annual April open-mic readings at Booktown Books & Tomes on Sundays during the month.

Bill Gainer says, “This year we had the opportunity to partner with Booktown to be part the largest literary celebration in the world and we jumped on it. What better place to showcase National Poetry Month than the community’s largest independent, co-operative bookstore? It is a great location and a great venue. The place is alive poetry.”

The April-Booktown readings are from 12 to 3 p.m. (April 2, 9, 23 and 30) at Booktown Books and Tomes, 107 Bank St. (corner of South Auburn) in Grass Valley, and are free. Call 432-8196 or 272-4655 for more information. For more about this story – and to hear audio clips of poets reciting – go online at our Web site, http://www.theunion.com/entertainment.
