Afternoon with the Author: Carolyne Whelan reads poetry of seafaring adventure and existential wandering

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Join us for a reading, conversation and book signing with author Carolyne Whelan.

In the 1980s, Tania Aebi became the first American woman and the youngest person to ever circumnavigate the globe solo. Decades later, Carolyne Whelan channeled the still-alive explorer to imagine how her exercise in bravery and loneliness matched her own. Carolyne will read excerpts from The Glossary of Tania Aebi and her new manuscript, The Sea, Like Air, with a conversation on imagination, creativity, and adventure. 

Carolyne Whelan spends as much time as she can outdoors. She loves wide open spaces, travel, and living beings. She is the recipient of the Jan-ai Fellowship to the Murphy Winter Writing Conference, Ralph Waldo Emerson Fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center, a scholarship to the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley, as well as to the Tupelo Press Truchas Peaks Conference. Her first chapbook, The Glossary of Tania Aebi, was published by Finishing Line Press. Her poetry and nonfiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Sugar House, Majestic Disorder, Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel, The Taos Journal of International Poetry and Art, and others. She lives in Pittsburgh, PA where she is the editor-in-chief at Dirt Rag Magazine.
