Member's Choice: Poetry and Photographs

Accompanied by slides of nature photography, Kent Wittenburg will read poems from his recently published book The Story is Beginning and Here I am Soaking Wet: Poems for Forest Bathing.

An Amazon reviewer describes Wittenburg’s book as “accessible yet evocative in its narrative and imagery. With humor, mastery of language, and nimble workplay, stories are told and pictures are drawn - stories of meaningful relationship and events in the poet’s life, dreams, and imagination. The poems present wise and spirited observations of human nature...and astute observations of the natural world.”

Kent Wittenburg was born in Fort Worth, Texas. He grew up in Concord, New Hampshire, with summers in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was educated at Hampshire College, Boston University, and the University of Texas at Austin. Retired from a career in information technology research and management, he now lives with his wife in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Over 60 articles related to his technical research are available on ResearchGate. Follow Wittenburg’s photographs and poems on Instagram @kentwittenburg.
