Sacramento poets featured at The Other Voice

From page A3 | January 13, 2013 |

After a break for the holidays, The Other Voice begins the new year with a reading by two poets from Sacramento — Albert Garcia and Jeff Knorr, that city’s new poet laureate. The reading begins at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road in rural West Davis.

Refreshments and an open mic follow the reading, so attendees are asked to bring along a poem or two to share.

Garcia has published two books of poems, “Rainshadow” (Copper Beech Press), and “Skunk Talk” (Bear Star Press), as well as “Digging In: Literature for Developing Writers” (Prentice Hall). Individual poems have appeared in many journals, including Prairie Schooner, Mid-American Review, North American Review, Yankee, Poetry East and Willow Springs. His work has appeared in Ted Kooser’s “American Life in Poetry” and has been read by Garrison Keillor in “The Writer’s Almanac.”

A native of Northern California, Garcia grew up on a walnut orchard near Red Bluff. He now lives in the rural community of Wilton and serves as dean of the Language and Literature Division at Sacramento City College.

Knorr, poet laureate of Sacramento County as well as the city of Sacramento, is the author of the three books of poetry, “The Third Body” (Cherry Grove Collections), “Keeper” (Mammoth Books) and “Standing Up to the Day” (Pecan Grove Press). Other works include three instructional books published by Prentice Hall.

His poetry and essays have appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies, including Chelsea, Connecticut Review, The Journal, North American Review, Red Rock Review, Barrow Street and Like Thunder: Poets Respond to Violence in America (University of Iowa).

Knorr has edited, judged and been a visiting writer for various conferences and festivals. He directs the River City Writer’s Series at Sacramento City College, has chaired the college’s English department and has served on the Sacramento County Office of Education Arts Advisory Board.

A professor of literature and creative writing at Sacramento City College, he lives in Sacramento.
