H STREET – Northtown Books welcomes Jeff DeMark for an evening of stories, songs and poems, accompanied by Deric Mendes and Gregg Devaney Friday, June 15 at 7 p.m.
“With the accompaniment of guitarist (and Northtown Books employee) Deric Mendes and various sound effects and percussion by Gregg Devaney, I’m going to do my first ‘show’ at this great, locally-owned independent bookstore,” DeMark said.
“To my sensibility, the golden triangle of communication is songs, stories and poems and that’s what I’m going to offer on this night. It’s going to be a range of emotions and moods I hope to evoke. So many great writers have been at this store and some of my teachers and colleagues like Jim Dodge, Dick Day and Jerry Martien have long histories with this Arcata institution. I’m looking forward to finally telling my tales while standing on those weathered wooden floors.”
