With our featured reader, Peggy Barnett

Peggy BarnettPeggy Barnett was born in 1945 and grew up in Queens, New York in the 1950’s. She graduated from The Cooper Union with a degree in Fine Art. She opened a studio in NYC in 1968 and was a photographer for 45 years. In 2006 she moved to Woodinville, WA. Peggy knows that the Northwest is beautiful, but memories of the past haunt her: the Holocaust, growing up Jewish in an Italian and Irish neighborhood, the atomic bomb, junior high school, and childhood’s distant happenings arise in her poetry as if in a dream. Her mind flits back and forth between the present and the past. The present on the West Coast is always interrupted by the past of the East Coast. Her poetic memoir On Your Left! dwells on the specifics of unending change.
