The program will present a conversation among artists and poets involved in making the artists’ book Sacred Sisters.

Sacred Sisters: The Making of an Artists’ Book will present a conversation among artists and poets involved in making the artists’ book Sacred Sisters, which celebrates the lives of eight women—artists, musicians, providers, and leaders—who lived their lives in the service of others.

The conversation will be hosted by MaryAnn L. Miller, a poet, printmaker, publisher, and longtime contributor to the New Jersey Book Arts Symposium. MaryAnn conceived of the project; Holly Trostle Brigham, an artist whose fabulous paintings illustrate the book, will participate and talk about her inspiration for the work, and Marilyn Nelson, professor emeritus at the University of Connecticut, the former poet laureate of Connecticut, and the 2017 winner of the NSK Neustadt Prize for Children’s Literature, will participate and read from her Sacred Sisters poems.

The program will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the SCC Teleconference Lecture Hall on the fourth floor of Alexander Library at 169 College Ave.

Sacred Sisters (Lucia Press, 2016) is owned by Special Collections and University Archives and will be on display during the event.

Guests may park in Lots 26, 30 & College Avenue Deck without permits. Please register your vehicle in advance.
