Meet the Author featuring Sarah Carlson
July 21, 2018 at 3pm
As we all do, Sarah Carlson has many pieces to her whole. Those pieces include: mother, teacher, daughter, friend, widow, sister, skier, bicyclist, hiker, coach, drummer, and poet. Sarah lives in the western foothills of Maine where opportunities to make connections amid the splendor of the rivers, lakes and mountains are plentiful. She began writing and combining her poetry with pictures of her experiences in the natural world as part of healing from the sudden loss of her husband, Barry.
Reading Sarah Carlson's poetry is a healing experience. There's an underlying urgency behind Sarah's writing, as if each poem is not only an inspired moment of insight, but also an act of self-preservation. Sarah's intimate connection to nature gives her a language from which to translate her personal experiences into imagery, rhythms, atmospheres. Anyone dealing with tragedy, loss or emotional confusion, will find comfort in these poems. Anyone wishing to take a poetic journey, without reading too much into it, will find that here too. A stunning collection of poems.
-Karen Montanaro, performer, teacher
