Join the local authors of The High Desert Poetry Cell as they read from their work at the monthly Second Sunday program in the Brooks Room at the Bend Public Library. This month’s celebration of the written word will take place Sunday, October 9th, at 2:00 p.m
. An open mic will follow the guest readers.
For the past five years, local poets John Martin, Don Kunz, John Kvapil, Peter Lovering and Larry Jacobs have met monthly to discuss and critique each other’s poetry. In 2009, billing themselves as the High Desert Poetry cell, they decided to put their work together into one volume and self-published a collection titled The Guys’ Big Book of Poetry
. They now have a second volume called The Guys’ Home Relationship Maintenance & Improvement Poetry Manual
, published by Two Ravens Publications. Proceeds from the sale of their second volume are being donated to Saving Grace of Central Oregon, a non-profit organization which provides services to the victims of domestic violence.
