East Pasadena Poets, Sunday, May 7 at 5:00pm, Mt. View Mausoleum
A military brat, Cathie Sandstrom has lived in five countries and ten states. Twice a Pushcart nominee, her work is on the website of the Academy of American Poets at poets.org, and has appeared in The Southern Review, Ploughshares, Ekphrasis, and Lyric, among others. Anthologies include Wide Awake: Poets of Los Angeles and Beyond. Her poem “You, Again” is in the artists’ book collection at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. She co-authored Eclipse Illumined, a collaboration of poems and images with the artist/poet Thom Cooney Crawford. She serves on the Advisory Board of the National Veterans Foundation, for whom she blogged for Huffington Post; and on the editorial board of The Arbor magazine for the Knights of the Vine International Wine Brotherhood. Cathie lives in Sierra Madre, against the San Gabriels, where she still expects to hear from the Pentagon any day.
