Following their performance at City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco, The High Desert Poetry Cell is back reading their original poetry in Bend.
Join the guy poets Larry Jacobs, Don Kunz, John Kvapil, Peter Lovering and John Martin at a fundraising reading for Saving Grace of Central Oregon on Sunday November 10 at 4:30pm at Dudley’s Bookshop Café, 135 NW Minnesota Ave., Bend
HDPC readings are entertaining because the poems are short, understandable and often funny. Also before you can get bored with one of the guys, another one has started reading.
If you buy a copy of the latest HDPC book for $15 at Dudley’s, $9 will be donated to Saving Grace of Central Oregon, which provides a multitude of services to victims of domestic violence. Furthermore Dudley’s (Bend’s last independent bookstore) will receive $6.
The guys are willing to autograph either of their books, which will immediately increase the value as a collector’s item by at least 50 cents.
If you already have a copy of the latest HDPC book, you can donate whatever you choose into a very stylish hat that will be passed.
It’s the cocktail hour. Buy some wine, beer, coffee or tea to sip during the reading. Dudley’s Bookshop Café does so much for our community, and we want to support them generously. FYI: After much experimentation, the guys have found that poetry and alcohol do mix as well as poetry and coffee.
