Poetry Night welcomes Bob Stanley — acclaimed teacher, author, entertainer and poet laureate of the city of Sacramento — who will perform at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bistro 33, 226 F St. in downtown Davis.

This event will be the last Poetry Night reading series event at Bistro 33, organizer Andy Jones announced. Hereafter, Poetry Night will take place on the first and third Thursdays of the month at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

Stanley has written poetry and volunteered in poetry organizations for more than three decades. President of the Sacramento Poetry Center since 2006, Stanley also has served on the board of Alameda Poets, and has led workshops and readings all over Northern California.

In 2008, Stanley organized a gathering of poets laureate for the California Arts Council, and in 2009 he edited “Sometimes in the Open,” an anthology of poems by 65 laureates.

His poems have won a number of awards, including the California Focus on Writers prize in 2006, and they have been published in numerous journals and anthologies.

Stanley earned his bachelor’s degree in English at UCLA in 1974 and master’s degree in creative writing at Sacramento State in 2005. He teaches creative writing and English at Sacramento State University, Sacramento City College and UC Davis Extension.

His first chapbook, “Walt Whitman Orders a Cheeseburger,” was published in 2009 by Rattlesnake Press, and his poem “Ode to the Rotation,” in honor of the San Francisco Giants, recently was published in The Sacramento Bee.

Guests are encouraged to arrive early to secure a table, and to sign up for a spot on the open microphone list. That segment begins about 9 p.m.
