POETRY AT THE PO with Miriam Dunn & Julia Heimer Dadds Beebe
TUESDAY, 11 JULY, 2017 at 8PM
Miriam Dunn has been published in numerous anthologies and online literary journals and released her debut solo collection of poetry, ”Who Will Love the Crow’, with Winter Goose Publishing in 2016. Miriam grew up on the pristine shorelines of Cape Breton Island on Canada’s east coast where she is a teacher, writer, hat-maker, mother, and dabbler in the visual arts.
Julia Heimer Dadds Beebe With Dr. Seuss as a strong influence, Julia Heimer Dadds Beebe started writing poetry around age 8. Inspired by William Carlos Williams’ example of being both physician and poet, she eschewed the fame and fortune of poetry as vocation and instead worked in human services and education long enough to see funding cuts in every critical need area.
Hard on the heels of attaining a PhD in Education from Indiana University and having fled the heat of her homeland, Julia is currently dividing her time between Halifax and Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. She and her mate Mark Beebe collaborate on multi-media art projects as Full Bore Mystic. Unlike Dr. Seuss, she rarely publishes and unlike William Carlos Williams, she does not ask forgiveness for eating the plums from the icebox.
