POETS! Lida Parent & Geddes Fielder, followed by an open mic
Jerry Ferrraz, m.c.
Lida Parent was born in Inglewood, in Southern California, and raised in nearby Chatsworth. She writes:
I recently became an American citizen which means I can now vote. That’s a big deal to me. September 11th changed the face of the world forever and it is a good thing to be able to have a part in electing leaders who understand the world and its climate.
I have had my poetry published in anthologies including ‘the other side of midnight’, ‘The girls’ story, and also in a magazine called gaia….a London based paper. I have also given readings at women’s events in London and here in SF at our local library and bookstore. My poetry is a compulsion that I cannot quite live without and I hope that you enjoy what you hear.
