Sander releases poetry memoir
“Hawthorne” celebrates a legendary West Marin poetic community of the 1970s, its neighbors and the luminaries who visited. Set in Bolinas, the beach, the eucalyptus and the fog, the poetic portrait captures a legendary epoch in the fabled community.
Among the vignettes are stanzas about locals Robert Creeley, Tom Clark, Aram Saroyan, Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Richard Brautigan, Lewis MacAdams and Joanne Kyger (and more), as well as visitors Allen Ginsberg, Gerard Malanga and Bob Dylan.
Sander, a pioneering New York rock journalist (author of “Trips: Rock Life in the Sixties”), incubated her poetry in Bolinas, Calif., in the ‘70s. “Hawthorne” is her homage to those poets and those times, when Bolinas was rife with poets and poetry in a thriving and spicy small-town culture.
After a stint in Los Angeles, she was an editor at Women of China magazine in Beijing in 2005, having taught college English in both Xiamen and Beijing. She was the 2013-14 Poet Laureate of Belfast, where she lives near Head of the Tides. Her poetry has been published in Chiron Review, Social Anarchism, Saturday Afternoon Journal, Dongxi, The Maine Review, Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review, Off The Coast and the 2016 anthology “Cross-Strokes,” as well as the re-launch of Oculus Vox. She is the host of “Poetry Woodshed Radio” on WBFY in Belfast and a member of Beyond Baroque.
“Hawthorne” is available from the publisher’s website, finishinglinepress.com, and via Amazon.
