An evening of thought-provoking lyrics and easy-listening music at Dzalbay Cantina.
Cher Bibler will start off the evening with a solo set of her original work.
Then Ellen Carol and Vinnie Luis (of Los Similares) will share a few of their favorite covers as well as a couple songs from Ellen’s original CDs “Slidin” and “Buttercup Hamsterjuice.”
“My poetry has slept around, you may not want to soil your hands.” Thus begins the new novel, “I Am Never Sure When,” by author Cher Bibler. A finalist for the Faulkner gold medal for fiction, this is her third novel (she also has two collections of poetry) and tells the story of a cripplingly shy poet who lives in a small city that bears a striking resemblance to Tiffin, Ohio. (Or a rose colored view of Tiffin, since the novel was written during the years the author lived in Merida, Mexico).
The opening sentence, by the way, is an attempt to explain the relationship a poet has with her poetry once it’s released to the public.
A native of Green Springs, Ohio, Cher has lived many years in Tiffin and is mostly known as the owner of a used bookshop, My Bookhouse, which was located on Route 53 across from Tiffin University. She also sings and play bass in a band called Tinfoil, just now releasing its 14th? 16th? (she lost track) album, “Happy.”
When Cher had had enough of Mexico, she moved back to Tiffin and is happily living with her two dogs and a cat and a houseful of books. “I Am Never Sure When” is available on Amazon.
