Watershed Books hosts Carolyn Wing Greenlee Dec. 7

LAKEPORT – Local author and publisher Carolyn Wing Greenlee will give a talk at Watershed books from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.

Greenlee is founder and president of Earthen Vessel Productions, a Lake County-based publishing company celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2008.

Greenlee will speak on the writing and publishing process and go in-depth and behind the scenes about     bringing some of the books to print.

Originally, Greenlee intended to only publish books on the Chinese-American experience to help keep her people's presence and contributions in the historical record, but she soon found other people's stories too irresistible to ignore.

Working with Lake County museums and the Lake County Historical Society, she began making available out-of-print books on Lake County history. Eventually she authored 10 books, edited and brought to print the poetry of Lake County Poets Laureate Jim Lyle and James BlueWolf, and illustrated BlueWolf's Children's book, "Speaking for Fire.”

Greenlee is a popular featured lecturer and teacher at many historical, cultural and literary events including national conferences for Women Writing the West. In 2000 she received the Artie Award and was awarded the Stars of Lake County Best Professional Artist of 2007.

She was Lake County's Poet Laureate for the years 2004-5 and is an award-winning poet, painter and photographer. Her current work, "Eternal River," covers the generational struggles of a Chinese-American family.

Join Watershed Books for this very special guest, good conversation and scrumptious refreshments.

Watershed Books is located at 305 N. Main Street in Lakeport, telephone 263-5787.
