On April 12th we will feature Victor Henry. He will be reading from his book of prose poems in progress, and his recent book published on November 11, 2015, Veterans Day, by Future Cycle Press in Kentucky What They Wanted. Victor Henry (Victor H. Bausch) served in Viet Nam with the 2nd Battalion, 47th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division, 1967-68. He is a member of Veterans for Peace. Currently, he is a Reference Librarian at Monterey Public Library in Monterey, California. In What They Wanted, Victor Henry’s narrative poems offer a journey into a war he was drafted to fight, in a strange country for political reasons he knew nothing about. Once there he discovers the surrealistic qualities of war, its undercurrents, and how American GIs were really fighting for each other. Ten years later, after graduating from university, learning to think analytically and critically, he begins to question and find answers to the mysteries that still plague his soul.
May 10th Peter Hoss will read from Born in Yosemite: 75 Years of Personal Observation. Peter takes the reader on a 75–year journey through the historical events and personal adventures that have shaped his Yosemite experience.
Our guest reader on June 14th is Patrick Fontes reading from Maria’s Purgatorio. Not for the faint hearted, expect sex, drugs, violence and speaking in tongues. Set in the sweltering summer months in Fresno, California, María seeks purpose, identity and some semblance of family among the gritty underground niches of society.
Kristina Baer will be the featured author July 12th reading from her fictional memoir, i.e., novel Minerva’s Fox. In it the protagonist Malorie Ellsworth recounts twenty-four years in her journey from young adulthood to middle age.
