Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.

Jerry Martien: Before the Flood

When: Fri., Feb. 23, 7 p.m. 2018

Jerry Martien reads from a new chapbook of poems. The book consists of half a dozen poems about the author and his dog walking on a small spit of land between Elk River estuary and Humboldt Bay. Its focus is on our brief present days, between the ages of Wiyot history and the coming inundation by rising tides. Before the Flood is a limited edition, with pages printed by Bug Press, its cover by Just My Type Letterpress, then bound and sewn by hand.
