TUESDAY, December 11th: Caryn MIrriam-Goldberg - Miriam's Well

Join Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg reading from her new novel Miriam's Well about mythology, history, and finding our place, people, and purpose. In this modern-day retelling of the Exodus, Miriam wanders the political and spiritual desert of a changing America, driven by her sense of purpose but searching for her place and her people. As she seeks the promised land, she shows her people, and eventually herself, how to turn the chaos and despair of our times into music, meals, and miracles.

Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Ph.D., the 2009-13 Kansas Poet Laureate is the author of two dozen books, including, most recently Everyday Magic: A Field Guide to the Mundane and Miraculous, and Following the Curve, poetry.  Founder of Transformative Language Arts at Goddard College where she teaches, Mirriam-Goldberg also leads writing workshops widely, and with singer Kelley Hunt, she co-leads writing and singing retreats. www.CarynMirriamGoldberg.com
