Part Two
Book Release and Celebration for
 "A Special Education"

by Meredith Bergman,
here seen with R. Nemo Hill, Poet and Publisher
Poet, teacher and sculptor, her work is said to "forge enriching links between the past and the concerns of the present."
This three paneled relief depicts children and animals...
...having switched places and activities
I wish I'd taken better photos here...
It's a wall sized, whimsical piece, executed masterfully.

Poets John Marcus Powell and Adriana Scopino
Artist Julian Mendez Perea
One of my favorite of her pieces
Her amazing sculptures
This one, a memorial of 9/11
Here she is with fellow poet and teacher
George Green
I should report that the view of central park was breathtaking, the food spectacular, the welcome and ease absolutely wonderful.  A most generous and delightful evening.
Sincere Thanks to Michael Bergman
I got an A+ as a dedication in my copy, and
you definitely should get your own:

Michelle, these glimpses of your days-- what you do and where you've gone and the interesting sites you noticed on the way -- your love of the arts, the flavor of your days, your eloquence ... all of this enriches my world. Thank you, my love to you.
