Award-winning poet to visit county libraries

Award-winning poet Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, author of “But a Storm is Blowing From Paradise,” offers a poetry reading and writing workshop at the El Dorado county Library in Cameron Park on Tuesday, July 3 from 4, to 6 p.m. and again at the El Dorado County Library in Georgetown on Friday, July 6, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Winner of the 2010 Benjamin Saltman Poetry Award, Bertram’s debut collection of poems emerges at a time when science is discovering more and more about the mysteries that make up our universe and our bodies.

Straddling the lyrical and experimental, “But a Storm is Blowing From Paradise” is in love with the universe of language.

Bertram’s poetry has been praised for its masterful imagery which pushes reading and seeing together into an unforgettable experience.

Fall in love with the language of poetry and learn how to create your own with a trailblazing poet on the cutting edge of stardom.

Bertram’s reading and workshop is made possible by California Center for the Book and Red Hen Press.
