Mendocino College Celebrates National Native American Heritage Month with Linda Noel Reading

Ukiah, CA - Poet Linda Noel will do a reading of her poetry at the Mendocino College Little Theater in the Lowery Library Building on Wednesday, November 8 at 7 PM. This free event is to celebrate National Native American Heritage Month and is sponsored by the Friends of the Mendocino College Library, an associate group of the Mendocino College Foundation.
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.
Noel was first published in 1983 through Strawberry Press, NYC with a chapbook titled “Where You First Saw the Eyes of Coyote.”  She is currently finalizing her manuscript titled “Mountain Stitch.”
