Copyright © 2014 Book 2: Alterations | Thread Light Through Eye of Storm by Gerda Govine
Gerda Govine Ituarte’s new publication, Oh, Where Is My Candle Hat?, is a handmade limited edition poetry art book written in English and Spanish with original artwork by Luis Ituarte (Poetry Art Book Station). She states that “writing poetry allows my reservoir of memories and observations to flow freely and bring comfort and joy. I reflect, illuminate, and connect with others using words to create a sense of place.”
Gerda was born in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, emigrated to New York City in the mid 50s, and then to California in the early 80s. She lives with her artist husband Luis Ituarte in Pasadena and Tijuana. She is CEO of G. Govine Consulting and a columnist for the Pasadena San Gabriel Valley Journal. Her poetry has appeared in domestic and international publications.
Alterations | Thread Light Through Eye of Storm is scheduled for release in the fall, 2014.
