6:30-7:30pm: Reading

Join Beach House writer-in-residence Dinah Berland for her third public event, a group reading from participants of her 8-week poetry workshop. Between January 14 and March 4, a group of 15 participants met at the Camera Obscura Art Lab to read great poets and write works in dialogue with each other on the themes of empathy and difference. Stop by to hear their work!

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.
