Words & Music back after summer hiatus

Quincy Words & Music returns after a summer hiatus to celebrate 30 years of this much-loved event tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 10, at Patti’s Thunder Café, 557 Lawrence St., starting at 7 p.m.

The featured artist will be Jeanne Rana.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m., with the featured artist starting at 7 p.m., the show goes until 9 p.m. 

Jeanne Rana is a California poet who has been inspired by the beauty of Plumas County for 28 years. She studied for 10 years with San Francisco poet laureate Diane Di Prima, and is continually influenced by the beat poets, the mystics and nature poets.

Rana is the author of three chap books, and has been published many places, including Paterson Literary Review, Earth’s Daughters, and Fresh Rain. Her poems have appeared in The Marin Poetry Center Anthology for the last three years.

Jeanne and her husband Kiran Rana run a Sufi center in Alameda (Bay Dervish). She is also a member of a theater company for seniors and sings in the choir at First Unitarian Church of Oakland. In January 2018 Jeanne became co-owner of the inn Ada’s Place in Quincy.

Plumas Arts is pleased to note that this presentation by Jeanne Rana is supported with funding from Poets & Writers, Inc.

Words & Music is a Plumas Arts program that started in 1989 at Morning Thunder Café with a grant from the California Arts Council. It features an artist to open the evening after which an open mic opportunity is offered to performers — novice and experienced — who bring unplugged acoustic performances of music and presentations of the spoken word.

Beverages are available for sale. Sign up at the door before 7 p.m. for open mic spot following the featured artist. Admission is $3.
