Taking In the Seasons with Jeanie

Tonight I went to a book launch of a writer friend of mine. Jeanie Mortensen published her second book, Taking In the Seasons. Her first is a novel, but this is a book of poems.

Our writers' group is a big fan of Jeanie. Her poems are poignant, nostalgic, and full of evocative imagery. She read five of them at the launch party.

We had a really good turnout for this kind of event. It was held at the Ludington Center for the Arts.

The cake was decorated with an edible reproduction of her book cover.
