Tonight, here’s what you need to know:
Linda Noel is a Native Californian of the Koyungkowi tribe who grew up in Willits. The former Poet Laureate of Ukiah has presented her work at various venues across the western United States and has most recently been both a featured reader and workshop presenter at the Redwood Coast Writers Conference, the Watershed Project, The Conference of American Indians; Humboldt State University, and Santa Rosa Junior College to name a few. Her work has been published in a variety of magazines, journals and anthologies including The Dirt is Red Here, by Heyday Books. She will be included in the “Sing Me Your Story, Dance Me Home: Art and Poetry from Native California” exhibit based on the Heyday book and coordinated by the California Exhibition Resources Alliance. The exhibit will tour more than twelve museums and libraries across California, including the Grace Hudson Museum in December 2007.
“Stephen Meadows has a true gift for poetry. He wrote ‘In the Water over Stones’ for his great-aunt Isabel Meadows, who left behind a rich body of Ohlone cultural knowledge. Now Stephen offers up his own gift to us all, expressing his very human and very California experience.”
—Linda Yamane, Rumsien Ohlone basketweaver and tribal scholar
