Please join us at Flourish on Tuesday, November 11th for a special Love-themed Tuesday Funk.
Dancing Girl Press founder KRISTY BOWEN commissioned fifteen poets to imagine the love letter and sold them boxed together under the title billet-doux. The result was something breathtaking, beautiful and full of surprises. Now Kristy and some of those same writers come to Tuesday Funk to share these letters in front of our microphones.
LISBETH LEVINE, co-author of the The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day will share her thoughts on the phenomenon of the contemporary American Wedding. And poet and essayiest ROBERTA WILSON reflects on the nature of love itself.
LISBETH LEVINE spent 10 years writing and editing at newspapers before embarking on a freelance career. She is a contributing editor at In Style magazine and has written for Chicago, Seventeen, Brides and many major newspapers. She has logged extensive computer time writing about weddings over the years, but nothing tops the wedding opus that is her first book. The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day (Workman Publishing), a collaboration with L.A. wedding planner Mindy Weiss, was published in April, 2008.
ROBERTA WILSON is a recent Chicago transplant, studied culinary and pastry art at the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. After completing the curriculum there, she graduated with an associates degree and began to work in the culinary field. Roberta also writes poetry and short stories, and hopes to publish her works.
