West Hollywood’s “Lesbian Speakers Series” continues with author and speaker Natalie Goldberg in conversation with West Hollywood city poet Steven Reigns on Thursday, June 30 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the city council chambers at the West Hollywood Library.
The discussion concludes 40 days of arts and cultural events that were part of West Hollywood’s “One City One Pride” celebration. The event will focus on the 30th anniversary of Goldberg’s book “Writing Down the Bones – Freeing the Writer Within” and her new book “The Great Spring – Writing, Zen, and this Zigzag Life.”
Goldberg is an artist, poet and author who lives in Northern New Mexico. In 1986, she published “Writing Down The Bones: Freeing The Writer Within,” which started a revolution in the way people write.
Since then, she has written nine books, including the novel “Banana Rose,” and her most recent work, “The Great Spring – Writing, Zen, and this Zigzag Life.”
Goldberg has taught seminars in writing as a practice for the last 30 years. She has been featured on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” in a segment on spirituality that covered her writing, teaching, painting and walking meditation.
Reigns has published multiple poetry collections and chapbooks, and is a six-time recipient of artist-in-residence grants from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The West Hollywood Library is located at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. For information, visit www.weho.org/pride.
