Speaker, Bill Minor
Bill Minor, a renaissance man of the arts, and a longtime resident of Pacific Grove, grew up outside Detroit in a family deeply involved in music. His background defines the word “eclectic.” From the age of seventeen he has been a professional jazz musician and he remains a prolific artist, poet, novelist, chronicler of jazz, and keyboard magician par excellence. He spent over thirty years as an educator and taught every humanities-related course from Creative Writing to American Humor and Comedy to Russian Literature. Minor has written close to 10 books ranging in substance from poetry to the history of the Monterey Jazz Festival for the fest’s 40th anniversary.
