Later this month, the Alameda Free Library will host an afternoon with artist and performer Charles Curtis Blackwell.

Blackwell is an East Bay poet, playwright, performer, and painter; the event will feature readings by Mr. Blackwell, a conversation with the audience and host Jeff M. Giordano, and a display of approximately 20 of Mr. Blackwell’s paintings.

His published plays and poetry include Is, The Color of Mississippi Mud and The Fiery Response to Love’s Callings. He has produced three spoken-word CDs in collaboration with jazz drummer Billy Toliver. Charles’ paintings have been shown from coast to coast and have received multiple awards. In 2009, he was one of three featured artists at Lighthouse for the Blind’s 20th anniversary exhibit in San Francisco.

The event, which begins at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 29th, is free and open to all, at the main library, 1550 Oak Street.
