Lesléa Newman identifies as Jewish, feminist and lesbian. She is the third author in a National Poetry Month series at Celebration Circle.
Celebration Circle is an inter-faith, non-profit organization with a creative, affirmative and inclusive approach to spirituality. Newman is the author and editor of more than 70 books and anthologies including the classic children’s book, “Heather has Two Mommies.”
Zet Baer, cultural activist and co-founder of the Celebration Circle, said the purpose of this poetic series is to focus on the vital role that poetry plays in building multi-cultural understanding, as well as to honor and nurture the Sacred in ourselves and each other.
“This series promises to be one of the standouts among the many National Poetry Month events being held in San Antonio in April,” Baer said. “The combination of each of these dynamic presenters reading their works interwoven with lively music will provide layers of experiential delight for attendees.”
Other poets in this series include Amanda Flores on April 30. For more information, visit the website for. Celebration Circle.
