1:00 p.m., Eureka Library, Poets Jacqueline Letalien & Lori Cole 'Journey to the Place Where the World's Moon is Full'

Saturday, April 21, 2018

Jacqueline Elizabeth Letalien is a spoken word artist known to Humboldt County audiences for her powerful, thoughtful retellings of Native American traditional tales, and her poetry, words from the deep springs of an individual human spirit. Her poems take you on a journey of world mythology, human history, natural cycles of earth, wind and water, the heartbeats of women, and echoing sacred silences. Lori Cole has loved poetry all her life and has been writing, submitting and self-publishing poems for ten years. Using free verse and Haiku, her topics range from growing up in Humboldt County to family and friendship, and important social and political events of our time. With a background in social work, in her poetry she aspires to provide hope for positive changes in our world.



in the water depths
is an ancient secret
revealed to those
willing to dive

Letalien straddles a ladderback chair and grins over her crossed arms.
