Note: No need to print out your ticket, just mention your last name when checking in.
Join Beach House writer-in-residence Dinah Berland for her second public event, a reading from her chapbook of poetry, Fugue for a New Life.
Dinah Berland is a widely published poet and book editor with a background in art. Her poems have appeared in more than two dozen journals, including The Antioch Review, The Iowa Review, New Letters, and Ploughshares, and are included in many anthologies. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College, received an Individual Artist’s Fellowship in Poetry from the California Arts Council, and won an international poetry prize from the Atlanta Review. Her book Hours of Devotion (Schocken, 2007) is a verse adaptation of the first (1855) full-length book of Jewish prayers "written by a woman for women."
During her residency at the Annenberg Community Beach House (1/10/17 - 3/14/17), Berland will be working on a chapbook of poems, titled Fugue for a New Life, presenting three public events and an 8-week workshop with the theme of “poetry and the art of listening.” She will also be holding public office hours every Friday from 11am-1pm and posting weekly updates at beachhouseair.blogspot.com.
