Description:
PRESENTATION OF THE BOOK BY AUTHOR:
Donna Hanelin

THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 5 PM, FREE

This Line We Follow, a book of poetry, includes narrations of nightmares and dreams, coming of age and environmental change. Lyric poems represent life in Mexico, contemporary culture and the influence and inspiration of children, grandchildren, lovers and dear friends. The book is divided into six sections, each of which begins with an illustrated page of prose about what helps keep poetry alive. A poem does not stand alone. He lives in the continuum of all poetry, in his connection with the individual reader, and as a framework for the understanding of the poet himself.

Donna Hanelin teaches creative writing in Northern California and has been offering retreats and writing classes in Oaxaca since 1997. He has lived in Mexico for most of the past eleven years; His recent work has been largely inspired by the people and fireworks of Oaxaca. Donna collaborated with local artist Armando Ruiz in You Jump to Water, a limited edition handmade poetry book. Flight from Oaxaca, a novel, was published in 2014 and takes place during the 2006 political uprising in Oaxaca./
