About this Event

The Los Angeles Breakfast Club is bringing friendship to Zoom! Join us on Zoom for our 95-year-old traditions, songs, and silliness, followed by a poetry reading and conversation with poet Betsy Holleman Burke from her new book, All That Remains.

All That Remains begins with the destruction of Betsy Holleman Burke’s family home. What follows are the memories which keep the place and people alive as she moves into a wider world.

Betsy Holleman Burke (Elizabeth C Holleman), the author of All That Remains, was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee on the Tennessee River. The rambling English Bungalow style house was a gracious center of life for her family and friends for over sixty years. When new owners destroyed it without warning, this collection was born. Betsy began writing poetry after the untimely death of her husband, Vernon, two decades ago, and the daily visit of a hummingbird. She is passionate about learning the craft and enjoys a ten year association with Professor David Keplinger and the Surrey Street Poets in Washington, DC. Her chapbook, Searching for Hummingbirds, was published in 2014, shortly before her marriage to an old friend. Betsy graduated from National Cathedral School in Washington, DC and Hollins University in Virginia as a history major. She is a floral designer at the Washington National Cathedral and Hillwood Museum. Visit Besty’s website today at Searching For Hummingbirds.
