Join us for a celebration of Robin Michel’s new collection of poems, Beneath a Strawberry Night Sky (Raven & Wren Press, 2023).
Free. Refreshments provided.
“It has taken nearly three decades to get this book ready for prime time,” says R0bin. “Earlier versions of these poems, with the exception of two, were written during the second half of my first marriage, the separation and the divorce. Compiling these poems into a collection is my way of honoring what we once had, grieving its loss and finding forgiveness. Although we considered ourselves adults, my first husband and I were children when we met, married and became parents.”
Robin Michel (Pedersen) was born in Utah and moved to Fremont, California at the age of 17. After her first marriage ended, Michel returned to school to complete her undergraduate work at Saint Mary’s College, and later, a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Mills College. She has over 25 years of experience as a professional writer, publisher, editor, creative writing instructor and communications consultant. Michel’s poetry and prose is published in many literary journals and anthologies, and she is the founder of Raven & Wren Press. She and her husband Dan Humphrey live in the Inner Sunset District of San Francisco where they enjoy sharing their love of literature, art, music, and history with their brilliant grandchildren and other young people.

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
