The books are here!!

Here I am at a local Arts and Crafts Fair displaying and offering  my new poetry book  WOMAN WANDERING 1975-2015  The response was warm and complimentary.  Now I am holding the book in my hands.  I feel its personal power.  It wants to be shared and read.  What an appropriate time of the year to be thankful and grateful for the joy of writing about the memories of my life as a woman, mother, artist, educator and lover of Nature and new places.

WOMAN  WANDERING   1975 -- 2015                          POEMS  BY  NINA TEPEDINO

Woman Wandering is a collection of fifty poems spanning forty years of poetic reflection.  It is a memoir in poetry, the new genre, to be considered and honored as my style to chronicle my life as a woman...my life as artist...my life as teacher...my life with Nature... my delights and displeasures and my elder wisdom to be absorbed and heard.  As I walk toward the Tree of Life, an elder Black Oak at the Gold Ridge Farm in Sebastopol, California, I embrace the living and growth in my life, as my creative force prospers and continues to wander.
