Remembering Kim-An Lieberman

May 5, 2014

Kim-An LiebermanSeattle lost a unique voice – and we lost a friend – when poet and 2009 Jack Straw Writer Kim-An Lieberman passed away in December 2013. On May 4, 2014 we gathered to celebrate her life and work, and the publication of In Orbit, her final collection of poems, published by Blue Begonia Press.

Kim-An’s poems were read by fellow poets and friends including 2009 Jack Straw Writers program curator Donna Miscolta and Kim-An’s fellow Jack Straw Writers Anna Bálint, Rachel Dilworth, Alma García, Laura Hirschfield, Priscilla Long, and Storme Webber; Dan Peters and Terry Martin from Blue Begonia Press; Paul Constant; Brian Culhane; Kathleen Flenniken; and Alan Lau.
