Poetry is synonymous with affairs of the heart; ergo, an evening of fine wine, gourmet chocolate and poetry sounds like a perfect way to show your love this Valentine’s season. This year Cupid has sent his arrow to the Artavina Gallery in Waukesha, where romance will take flight in the form of local author Cristina Norcross and her third book, Unsung Love Songs. This collection honors the daily acts of affection between lovers and highlights the humor and gentleness of true devotion. Norcross will read from Unsung Love Songs as part of a gallery event featuring live music, a poetry open mic, savory wine and a delicious chocolate tasting.

Norcross earned a bachelor’s honors degree in English literature from the University of Ottawa and currently splits time between Wisconsin and New England. Norcross, who has had more than 50 short stories, poems and articles published in multiple countries, is best known for her poetry collections The Red Drum and Land & Sea.

If you and your partner are looking for a whimsical, imaginative way to commemorate St. Valentine’s Day, listen to Norcross’ Unsung Love Songs on Saturday, Feb. 6, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Artavina Gallery, located at 378 W. Main St. in Waukesha. In the spirit of the holiday, attendants are asked to donate to the American Heart Association (AHA). All proceeds from the sale of Norcross’ book at this event will be donated to the AHA.

Open Book in Shorewood is scheduled to host a book signing and workshop on Sunday, Feb. 7, as veteran career coaches Kathy Bornheimer and Jeffrey R. Percival visit the store to discuss their job search guide, Work Makes Me Sick: Prescribe Something Quick.

Bornheimer and Percival are both local business people whose vast experience in recruitment and employee improvement strategies led to their collaboration on this easy-to-use guide. Bornheimer and Percival will appear at Open Book on Feb. 7 at 1:30 p.m. to share tips from Work Makes me Sick.
