MARGE TINDAL - Invited to read an original poem commemorating the Inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 20, 2009, at the Fifth Annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival in Delray Beach, Florida, at Old School Square's Cultural Arts Center. Visiting poets participating in and auditing Festival workshops, faculty, staff, and members of the public will be in attendance. The Palm Beach Poetry Festival includes poets and poetry that have been winners and finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Award in Literature of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Guggenheim and NEA Fellowships, the National Book Award, the Kingsley-Tufts Poetry Award, Pushcart Prizes and more.
Such an invitation is wonderful recognition for Marge's fine work as a poet. It is great to see our writers honored in this manner. Unfortunately Marge is ill at the present time and won't be able to present her poem, but what an honor for her to be invited.
In addition to being a fine member of Authors Den, Marge is also a member of The Writing Forum and she will be featured in their upcoming TWF Newsletter.
