Geri Digiorno and the Petaluma Poetry Walk
...
Known as "the poet of the people", Geri Digiorno served as Sonoma County's Poet Laureate in 2006 - 2007. She is also the founder and director of the annual Petaluma Poetry Walk. Her published works include Marilyn and Me, White Lipstick, Rosetta Mary, and I'm Tap Dancing. Her spare, direct style has earned high praise from many other poets. It has been said of White Lipstick "With these poems, sparsely worded and richly lived, Geri Digiorno reminds us again just how entangled the delicate roots and tendrils of family and "individual" identity can become. Her lovingly subjective subjects include family, neighborhood, coming of age, friendship, betrayal, initiation, baptism, masquerade, transformation, sexual discovery and conquest. Geri Digiorno was also the editor of the Petaluma Poetry Walk 10-Year Anthology which was published in 2007. She is also a highly-respected visual artist. A Reading at the Petaluma Library is being sponsored by the Friends of the Petaluma Library.
