The Glen Arbor Art Association’s (GAAA) “Talk About Art” series continues with host Norm Wheeler in conversation with Traverse City poet Fleda Brown on Sunday, May 7, 2 p.m. at The Leelanau School in Glen Arbor. There is no charge.
In a wide-ranging conversation about the craft of writing, Wheeler and Brown will talk about how life events — both small and large — have found their way into her writing. Recently, the artist used her craft to examine a cancer diagnosis, which lead to a blog and a new volume of poems, My Wobbly Bicycle: Meditations on Cancer and the Creative Life, published in 2016. The author of nine books of poetry and two essay collections, Brown is the former Poet Laureate of Delaware (2001-2006). She taught for many years at the University of Delaware, where she founded the Poets in the Schools Program, and now teaches in The Rainier Writing Workshop, Pacific Lutheran University’s Low Residency MFA Program.
The Leelanau School is located at 1 Old Homestead Road in Glen Arbor. For more information please call the GAAA, 231/334-6112, or check the website: glenarborart.org.
