Henderson, Bellows featured at poetry reading Friday

The Other Voice, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, will present local poets Brad Henderson and Tim Bellows for a reading at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the church library, 27074 Patwin Road. Refreshments and an open mic follow the readings.

Henderson teaches engineering writing at UC Davis and also a freshman seminar on the psychology of drummers — rock, jazz and blues. He is working on a textbook that teaches writing through the lens of math.

He grew up in Davis and attended Davis schools, alternating time in the city and in the country such that now he refers to himself as a “secret cowboy.” His family’s roots in Davis are deep — his maternal great-great-grandfather, Henry Hamel, was a local rancher. His father, Jerry Henderson, and grandfather, Milton Henderson, were UCD professors.

He is the author of the Phi Kappa Phi award-winning rock and roll novel, “Drums.” He has written several small volumes of poetry, most prominently “Split Stock: Selected Poems,” co-authored with “Dr. Andy” Jones.

Henderson also has published his poems individually in a variety of outlets. His poem, “December calving,” was a Best of the Net 2012 finalist. He is also an avid fan of music and has played drums, for fun and semi-professionally, since he was 9 years old. His son, Silas, is a virtuoso on the piano and saxophone.

Bellows, who has a graduate degree from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, teaches writing at Sierra College. Devoted to lakes, mountains and inner perception, he’s widely published in journals and Internet venues, and has twice been nominated for the Annual Pushcart Prize.

His book, “Citrus & Green,” has just gone live from AuthorHouse Press out of Bloomington (see Amazon.com). Bellows edits and directs YourPoetryProf.com, for the poetry-addicted, the trail-trekkers and the mystics
