Steve Hellman & Mike A’Dair: Starlight Lounge
March 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Veteran poets Steve Hellman and Mike A’Dair will read their poetry at the next installment of Starlight Lounge, a poetry series at the Willits Community Theatre. The reading will take place on Saturday, March 11 at 7 p.m. An open reading will follow.
A publishing writer since 1972, Steve Hellman’s poetry, fiction, memoir, journalism, reviews, and translations have appeared in many publications, among them: the San Francisco Chronicle, Carmel Pine Cone Weekly, Willits Weekly, Oboe Magazine, 14 Hills Literary Journal, and the Clamor of Innocence anthology. He has performed as a spontaneous spoken word poet since the early 1980s, after learning the form through Beat Era forerunners. He currently teaches creative writing at Mendocino College.
Mike A’Dair holds the title of the most obscure poet in America. A longtime resident of Willits, A’Dair was a newspaper reporter for Mendocino Country, The Willits News and Willits Weekly from 1990 to 2020. He is the author of two books on the Shakespeare Authorship Question and a book of poems, The Recrudescence of the Supernal.
Entry to the reading is by donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The Willits Community Theatre Playhouse is located at 37 West Van Lane, a block west of Mazahar Clothing Store and a block south of Pizza To Go.
