Lunch with Suzanne E. Berger, poet & autobiographer

Wilderness House Literary Retreat continues its tradition by presenting:

A Lunch with Suzanne E. Berger
(our first event ever at the newly rebuilt Wilderness House)

Suzanne E. Berger, poet, essayist, and teacher, is the author of These Rooms, a book of poems published by Penman Press, Legacies, a collection published by Alice James Books, and Horizontal Woman (Houghton Mifflin) a memoir of being disabled by back injury which received world wide notice. She has received awards from the MacDowell Colony, the Massachusetts Council on the Arts, the Somerville Arts Council, and the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts. She teaches a poetry class at Lesley University. Her poems and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York times Magazine, Ploughshares, Agni, Prairie Schooner, Antaeus, and many other Journals.

She has been a Vista volunteer, a community organizer, a Headstart teacher, and a tutor for ESL students. She is the mother of one child, whom she raised lying down. Today she finds the world of being ?upright? after eight years of disability to always be an exciting adventure.
