Description

Someone gave me a book with blank pages and, being a writer, I must fill them up with a story, my story. And now, some five years later, it is time to begin... I don't want to write your standard autobiography, beginning with my birth and going on year by year to the here and now. But I want to record the things, the people and the moments sometimes with pictures and my poems, that mean the most to me, that I want to save and share with anyone who wants to read this. I am not-nor do I think I will be-a famous person so there is no ready captive audience for this. But I would like to write this in a way that makes you want to "ask me" and read on...show more

About Anna Boothe

I was born in Chicago and spent my childhood in Kansas City, MO, where I was Valedictorian in my class at Southeast High School. I got a bachelor's degree in Journalism at the University of Missouri in Columbia, a master's degree in English, a master's degree in counseling and did Ph. D. studies in psychology at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. In Kansas City I founded and was Poetry Editor of Fine Arts Discovery Magazine and won a fellowship to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. I then lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where I won a fellowship to the Instituto Allende and led the San Miguel Poetry series. I also taught at the Escuela John F. Kennedy, a bilingual school in nearby Queretaro. Back in the United States, I headed weekly poetry and music programs at eh Eye of the Beholder coffeehouse near Golden Gate Park and read poems at coffeehouses including City Lights, Sacred Grounds and The Grand Piano. I moved to the nearby town of Pacifica where I was a member of the Cultural Arts Committee and headed monthly Pacifica Poetry Forums and our annual Pacifica Poetry Festivals celebrating our town's incorporation on November 22. I founded Preserve Our Pier Supporters which, in its 14 years, helped the city get almost $2 million in grants to repair our Pacifica Pier. I am still living in Pacifica with my husband, Gary, and our dog, Louie.show more
