CMC Celebrates National Book Month with Shared Visions: The Art Of Bill Dahl & Cynthia Anderson

    January 6, 2014

    In celebration of National Book month join us for the husband-and-wife team of Bill Dahl, a photographer, and Cynthia Anderson, a poet, who have collaborated on three books—Shared Visions, Shared Visions II, and In the Mojave. They will share their work, discuss their creative process and describe how they publish their books.

    This cultural event begins at noon, on January 16, 2014, in the Community Room at the Bell Center. The event is free and open to the public.  At 12:45 hear our students read their literary works from the Howl Magazine.

    Bill Dahl’s photographs have appeared in juried shows and won awards in the Morongo Basin as well as Santa Barbara and Ojai. He is self-taught, starting out in a conventional darkroom and switching to digital about ten years ago. His special interests include photographing landscapes and desert curiosities.

    Cynthia Anderson’s poetry has been widely published and won many awards. Locally, her poems have appeared in The Sun Runner Magazine, “Writing From Inlandia” and “Phantom Seed”. She is the co-editor of an anthology titled A Bird Black as the Sun: California Poets on Crows & Ravens.

    For more information contact C. Allen at 760-366-3791 ext. 0600.  This cultural series, which is held every third Thursday of the month, is sponsored by the Cultural Education Enhancement Committee and the CMC Foundation.
