Poet Helen Rousseau

Kennebunk Free Library invites you to join us on Zoom as local poet Helen Rousseau reads from her latest book, Poems for a World on Fire: Meditations on Hope. Rousseau says of the book: “It was begun last year and focused on global warming, deforestation, loss of animal habitat and the lack of action on our part. Then the coronavirus came along which brought about so many more issues that we hear discussed in the news every day.”
 
Poems for a World on fire is Helen’s third book of poetry. Her first two are Early childhood Education: A Memoir in Verse about growing up Catholic in the fifties and Coming to the Edge: Fifty Poems for Writing and Healing, a resource for writing with prompts. She’s been leading writing classes for twelve years. Recently, she has taught at senior colleges, using her book Coming to the Edge. It is also used by many therapists with their clients. Helen is also a spiritual guide and interfaith minister.
