March 26 @ 2:00 pm

WRA, in conjunction with the Bernardsville Public Library, hosts the
AUTHOR SERIES to engage the public with writers and the writing life.

Tea and Conservation with Tina Kelley

“Tea and Conversation” is a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Listen to a stimulating conversation. Ask questions. Meet the author. Engage with friends and writers in the community.

Tina Kelley’s third poetry collection, “Abloom and Awry,” is coming out this spring from CavanKerry Press. Her second collection, “Precise,” was published in 2013 by Word Press, which also published her first collection, “The Gospel of Galore,” winner of a 2003 Washington State Book Award. She co-authored “Almost Home: Helping Kids Move from Homelessness to Hope,” (2012) a national bestseller about homeless young people helped by Covenant House. She was a reporter at The New York Times for ten years, shared in a Pulitzer Prize in Public Service Journalism for being a part of the Times’ coverage of the Sept. 11 attacks, and wrote 121 “Portraits of Grief,” short descriptions of the victims. Her writing has appeared in Audubon, the Journal of the American Medical Association, Orion, People, Poetry Northwest, Poetry East, Southwest Review, Prairie Schooner, and The Best American Poetry 2009, and on the buses of Seattle Washington. She won the 2014 New Jersey Poets Prize, and lives in Maplewood, NJ with her husband and two children.
