Poems for parenting

 Parents need poetry, too. Head over to Bloomsbury Books tonight, Thursday April 16 at 7:00 pm, to hear Dr. Jane Hunter read from and discuss her book, “The Well-Versed Parent: Poetic Prescriptions for Parenthood.” Hunter’s short poetic essays and 50 poems from great poets such as Sylvia Plath, Naomi Shihab Nye, Gary Snyder, Sharon Olds and Charles Wright offers a unique look at child development and parenting through the language of poetry.

Hunter is a Francisco Bay Area pediatrician known to her patients and their families as Dr. Jane. For thirty years she was a partner in a small pediatric practice in Berkeley, where she and her husband Bill Hunter raised two children and where she still lives. She began reading and writing poetry years ago while recovering from a serious illness, and continues to explore how words, written and spoken, can connect and heal.

Bloomsbury Books is located at 290 E Main St, Ashland. For more information call (541) 488-0029.
