Poets House New York City & Remembering a Friend

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

from the archives-   Found a special poetry book on the shelf in Poets House in New York City- Dorothy Holley’s Dream Quartet.    Dorothy Holley was born 88 years ago today- May 15th.  The poetry community of Pittsburgh misses her greatly.

I filmed a video of Dorothy reading her poetry in 2005, Quart Jar Poet.  She was an inspiration, publishing her first book at age 82 and then three more books to follow. Here are a couple photos from Poets House.  From the inside you look out onto the Hudson River.  You can listen to Dorothy reading some of her poetry on YouTube, filmed by Barb Alsko, if you put in her name in the search.  She was a good friend to me.  I miss having tea with her.   She kept a beautiful garden. Her iris are growing and blooming at Liane’s these days.  Click here for last year’s postto remember Dorothy.
