This month, Daniel Barth is the featured reader. Daniel is the author of The Day After Hank Williams’ Birthday, Fast Women Beautiful, Coyote Haiku, and Ukiah Haiku. And he is a past Ukiah poet laureate. He will be reading from his new book, At the Corner of Vigor and Wisdom. Dan goes on at 7:00 PM, followed by open mic at 8:00.
Writers Read happens on the last Thursday of most every month and has been happening in Ukiah since 1999. Events focus on poetry, spoken word, and stories, combining a reading by a featured author, then followed by an hour of open mic. Writers Read is sponsored in part by Poets & Writers, and by grants from the James Irvine Foundation and the Hearst Foundation. Additional support provided by an anonymous local writer, Dan Barth, Michael Riedell, Bill “Jabez” Churchill, the Poet Laureate Committee of Ukiah, the Grace Hudson Museum, and donations.
