[May] The 4th Annual Art of Letter, Word & Book exhibit is up and running (until May 30) at Odd Fellows hall, corner of Ukiah and Kasten Streets in Mendocino. Please stop by any day between 9:30 and 5 p.m. to browse the galleries. The Writers Conference “Word Journeys” installation upstairs invites your input! Please pick a card, a prompt, and some map words. Scribe your imaginary flights of mind and add to the display. Young writers: Broadside poems from Redwood Elementary Second Grade students and beautiful handmade books from Anderson Valley / Point Arena schools offer delight and inspiration. Both projects were sponsored in part by GASP / the Arts Council of Mendocino County along with the Community Foundation, Mendocino County Office of Education and the Hudson Family Trust.
You’re invited to a special event on Saturday May 21, 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. This is the Noyo River Review launch party and offers an all-ages Open Mic. Sign-ups start at 3.
