Pop-up poetry event set for today

As one of many pop-up in celebration of Poetry Month, five Nevada County poets will, for the sixth year, read their poems.

This year’s reading will take place in the bar of the National Exchange Hotel, 211 Broad St., Nevada City, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. today.

Collectively, the women — Molly Fisk (Nevada County’s inaugural poet laureate), Kirsten Casey (Nevada County’s current poet laureate), Judy Crowe, Judie Rae, and Ingrid Keriotis — have published hundreds of poems in books, magazines, anthologies, newspapers, and literary journals.

The pop-ups lead up to the all-day Sierra Poetry Festival on April 30 at Miners Foundry, 325 Spring St., Nevada City. Check out the details of all of the pop-ups and the festival: www.sierrapoetryfestival.org.
