Ferry Plaza Book Party: Poetry Night

We’re celebrating some of our LCW poets, including Marianne Betterly and her latest publication in Between the Fault Lines, which grew out of a group of eight poets living east of the San Francisco Bay who inhabit a land fraught with faults. Fortunately, Bay Area poets are not easily shaken by occasional tremblers. Living on the edge can, in fact, stimulate the creative process. Crisscrossing the hills to discover whether or not their poems communicated, these poets strengthened their individual voices and produced an amazing set of rich and diverse poems.

When she isn’t hip hop dancing, Marianne Betterly designs websites and travels the world in search of the best cup of coffee, always writing poetry. She writes about nature, love and loss with a poet’s Cheshire smile. She lives in a house in Kensington once owned by the grand-nephew of Ralph Waldo Emerson.
