September Serenade! Poets Holper, Vrtiak, Fitzmaurice, & Fricke

Hear four of Humboldt’s most dynamic poets in performance tonight! David Holper, Vanessa Pike Vrtiak, Therese Fitzmaurice, and Anne Fricke perform free at the library. David Holper reads from his new book, ‘The Bridge’ (SequoiaSong, 2019). ‘The Bridge’ is David Holper’s second book of poetry, consisting of his best work over the last ten years. A widely published poet and fiction writer, Holper has taught creative writing for 30 years, and has received critical praise and awards for his poetry and fiction, as well as appreciation for his skill in teaching. Watch for more Holper books coming soon, a book of poetry and a handbook for writers. Anne Fricke is an author, poet, podcaster, wife, mother, storyteller and aspiring campfire musician. Her debut novel is ‘The Orchard’s Descendant’. She is currently working on her second collection of poetry, ‘One Mother’s Revolution’, along with a writing journal and workshop for parents and caregivers of children with special needs, ‘There is Joy To Be Found Here’. You can find more at her website annefricke.com. Vanessa Pike-Vrtiak uses her poetry as a tool to promote social activism, but also to remind herself and others how truly precious life is. She is currently creating a full length traveling performance that will reach across the country, growing a community garden filled with more love than her two hands can hold, and finishing her sixth chapbook. She’s also Poetry Slam Master extraordinaire! Therese Fitzmaurice recently published her fourth collection of poetry, ‘How to Love this Woman’. Her work explores the inner landscape of a life lived contemplating the intersection of spirit & flesh, individual & tribe, offering & receiving. She utilizes her professional skills to create and sustain community events, rituals and workshops with the mindful intention to inspire participants to become fully present with the everyday miracle of being alive. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
