Dowitcher Press to Present ‘The Poems of Alan Stephens: A Reading’

In honor of national poetry month, Dowitcher Press will present “The Poems of Alan Stephens: A Reading” on April 21.

The event will highlight the work of a respected local poet who frequently wrote about the Santa Barbara area with collection titles such as Goodbye Matilija and Running at Hendry’s.

Local poets and authors, including John Ridland, Barry Spacks, Caroline Allen and Robyn Bell, will read selections from three newly published books: Selected Poems, Collected Poems (1958-98) and Running at Hendry’s. Stephens’ son and editor of the collections, A.A. Stephens, will provide opening remarks.

The reading will begin at 4:30 p.m. April 21 at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara, 1535 Santa Barbara St. A reception will follow, and books will be available for purchase.

The event is free and open to the public.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
