Hummingbird Press Poetry Collective Evening of Poetry

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 7:00pm

Bookshop Santa Cruz is pleased to present this community event featuring The Willing Suspension Armchair Theatre, a Santa Cruz readers’ theatre performing company dedicated to the sharing of fine writing with audiences who like to listen, and The Hummingbird Poetry Press, a Santa Cruz-based poets’ collective dedicated to publishing the writings of Monterey-area writers whose work finds language to explore the world around us and the many realms of the lives we live. The Willing Suspension Armchair Readers are Kathy Chetkovich, Deborah Bryant, Andrew Stewart, John Chandler, Sarah Albertson, Gail Borkowski, Andrew Davids, and Avondina Wills. They will be performing works by Hummingbird Authors from the newest Hummingbird collection: David Sullivan, Rosie King, Barbara Bloom, Simon Hunt, Wilma Chandler, Amber Sumrall, Kim Schleiber, Charles Atkinson, Len Anderson, Tilly Shaw, Ken Weisner, George Lober. 

Hummingbird writers share a love of the written word, the process of creating poems, the sharing of poems in public or in private groups, and the solitary and intimate connection that we can establish with poems in a book. There are poets in our community of extraordinary voice that the Hummingbird Press Poetry Collective wants to recognize and publish. They want readers to be able to pull their books off the shelf at home and read them when the mood strikes. All hummingbird authors’ books are available at Bookshop Santa Cruz.

This is a FREE event, but donations gratefully accepted. Refreshments will be served and books available for purchase.
