Poetry for the People featuring Ellen Bass, Dean Rader, Sally Ashton and more

Thursday, September 18, 7:30 p.m.

99 Poems for the 99 Percent

99 Poems is #2 on the Small Press Distribution Poetry Bestseller List!

Come celebrate poems written for the people with contributors to the new collection, 99 Poems for the 99 Percent.

Poetry is not an inaccessible and irrelevant art form, and the newest collection edited by Dean Rader proves that today's poetry continues the rich tradition of taking on important political and social events. American poetry is about democracy, and the poems in this collection reach you on issues you care about in a voice you can recognize. These are poems full of anger, love, protest, humor, contemplation, hope, frustration, and beauty.

The collection started as a project that posted 99 original poems over 99 days by major American poets, emerging writers, students, and ordinary Americans. The project encompasses a plurality of voices, approaches, and visions, and is now available in book form.

The event will feature poets Ellen Bass, Sally Ashton, Dean Rader, J.P. Dancing Bear, C.J. Sage, Rachelle Escamilla, Dan Bellm and Dennis Richardson.

TAB* presents: Kim Culbertson & Catherine Linka

Friday, September 19 @ 7:00 Kim Culbertson Catch a Falling Star is Kim Culbertson's third YA novel. When she’s not writing for teens, she’s teaching them. She’s a college advisor and teaches creative writing at Forest Charter School. Kim wrote her eBook novella The Liberation of Max McTrue for her students who, over the years, have taught her much more than she has taught them. Kim lives in the Northern California foothills with her husband and daughter. Catherine Linka Catherine Linka was almost thrown out of boarding school for being “too verbal.” Fortunately, she learned to channel her outspokenness and creative energy into writing. She is the author of the romantic spec fiction thriller, A Girl Called Fearless. Catherine has traveled to such out of the way places as the Arctic circle, Iceland, and the Amazon and her personal goals include seeing penguins and orcas in the wild. She doesn’t believe in fate, but she did fall in love with her husband on their first date when he laced up her boots after she broke her hand.

Larkspur - Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater discuss and sign "Juice"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, September 20 at 10:30am
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater to the store to discuss and sign their new book, Juice: Recipes for Juicing, Cleansing, and Living Well, on Saturday, September 20th at 10:30am. Please note: This event will take place under the big tent at the Marin Country Mart Farmers' Market.

Juicing was once considered a fringe practice of raw-food zealots, but now it has become a widely accepted source of vital nutrients and an integral part of a fit and healthy lifestyle. In this full-color health guide and cookbook (which really only requires a blender to use) the founders of Los Angeles-based Pressed Juicery demonstrate seventy-five of their most popular juices, including signature beverages like Chocolate Almond and Coconut Mint Chip. Also included are detailed instructions on how to do a juice cleanse safely, the benefits of juicing, and testimonials from those who have experienced personal health transformations.

Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater are the founders of Pressed Juicery, a Los Angeles-based chain of juice shops with more than twenty locations in Northern and Southern California. Pressed Juicery has been featured in numerous magazines, TV and radio programs, and websites.
