Davis poet laureate Eve West Bessier will be featured at the Poetry Night Reading Series, at 8 p.m. Thursday at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St. in downtown Davis.

Bessier, a writer, musician and visual artist, was chosen as Davis’ second poet laureate in 2012. In 2000, she received the Kathryn Hohlwein Award and first place for poetry in the California Focus on Writers Contest. Her publications include poems featured in The North American Review, Kalliope, Lyric, Manzanita, Seeker, “The Sacramento Anthology: One Hundred Poems” and Heart Flip.

In 2011, Bessier was published in the Davis anthology “Entering.” She has two chapbooks, “Roots Music” and “Splash,” both published by dPress. In 2003, her poem “Zoo You, Boogaloo” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Read the poem at http://www.dpress.net/STABLE/DP_S_EB_rootsmusic.htm.

Bessier is active in the Davis community, teaching voice, writing and drama to students of all levels and ages. She is also a life coach with a background in personal and community development, spiritual guidance counseling and the arts.

In 2010 and 2011, she was chosen to emcee and perform at the Cool Davis Initiative community 350.org climate awareness events.

At the poetry reading, Bessier will perform some original work, and unveil her Poetry Tree Video Project.
See the video introduction to the project, which she has funded with a successful Kickstarter campaign, at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/187929903/the-poet-tree-video-project.

The open mic will begin about 9 p.m. and the after-party will follow at 10 p.m. The Poetry Night Reading Series, coordinated and hosted by Andy Jones, and produced by Lane Berger, takes place at the John Natsoulas Gallery on the first and third Thursdays of every month.

Jones has been appointed the third poet laureate for the city of Davis; he will take over the duties on Sept. 1.
