A long-time Glendale Community College English professor will be among the hundreds of writers appearing at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend.
Bart Edelman's sixth book of poetry, "The Geographer's Wife," was recently published by Ren Hen Press. Edelman will be at booth #920 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the festival on the USC campus.
Edelman will also make appearances at the Glendale Public Library on April 29 and at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena May 5.
Edelman is the founder of Eclipse, an annual literary journal that publishes the work of Glendale Community College students and professional writers side-by-side. It attracts between 1,500 and 1,800 submissions for each edition, which are then whittled down to about 10 short stories and 75 poems.
Past Eclipse contributors include Sandra Kohler, winner of the 2002 Assn. of Writing Programs Award Series in Poetry, and David L. Ulin, book critic for the Los Angeles Times.
