This will be a short quick post–bringing “Coming Attractions” (under Upcoming Events) up to date.
With regard to the Old Capitol Books performance filmed for the Poetry Box half-hour TV show in Santa Cruz, introducing my book The Inherited Heart: An American Memoir, it has appeared once—and I missed it, didn’t know about it, and alas, was engrossed in watching the San Francisco Giants lose another baseball game! The show did air Tuesday, August 6, 8:30 pm on Community Television of Santa Cruz, Comcast cable channel 27 and Charter (Watsonville, California) channel 73.
In my “Coming Attractions” post I said I would post a schedule when I had one, and I do now. “Poetry Box #80 William Minor, Part 1” (produced by Joanna Martin and co-sponsored by Poetry Santa Cruz) will be shown again on the following dates and times:
Tuesday, August 13, 8:30 PM.
Tuesday, August 20, 8:30 PM
Tuesday, August 27, 8:30 PM
CTV (Community Television of Santa Cruz County) is undergoing “changes” and additional screening of “Poetry Box #80 William Minor, Part 1” is uncertain just now, the station’s public statement: “CTV is in the process of updating our live streams to another format.” But the performance by Jaqui Hope (vocals), Heath Proskin (bass) and me on piano and reading can be seen on channels 27 and 73 at the dates and times listed, and streamed at http://www.communitytv.org/ctv3.
Also, the “Best of The Inherited Heart: An American Memoir and New Poems Set to Music” performance featuring Jaqui, Heath and me cited in “Coming Attractions” as scheduled for Saturday, August 24 at the Museum of Monterey (MOM) will start at 7:30 PM, admission $5 for MHAA (Monterey History & Art Association) members and $10 for non-members.
I’ll close this post with the content of a flyer sent out for that event–and will add additional info on CTV showings (beyond those already scheduled) in future “Upcoming Events” posts.

Come enjoy an evening reading from the best of Bill Minor’s new book The Inherited Heart: An American Memoir–selection based on favorites from two previous “Launch Parties”–and new poems and prose set to music performed by Bill (piano), Jaqui Hope (vocals) and Heath Proskin (bass). Poems, new prose and short lyric portions from the book are mixed with original recently composed pieces and songs (“standards”) from the era depicted–the music providing an added dimension to and enhancing the words.
