The Clarity of Birds: A Talk by Betsy Headley
In this presentation, local poet and photographer Betsy Headley will share
work from her most recent book, The Clarity of Birds. The book features Headley’s images interwoven with her thoughts on beauty and brutality, compassion and aging, and wisdom and wildlife. Of the book, poet Barbaría María has written: “The reverence of years engaged in following birds with her camera, getting to know them, continues to infuse Betsy’s poetry with a finely tuned focus. She is patient with the moment, capturing the fine details of beauty, pain, compassion, and insight.” Headley will read from the book and answer audience questions.
Betsy Headley is from Swanville, Maine. Something Is Always Left (2017) was her first poetry book, and The Clarity of Birds is her second. Betsy has a BA in anthropology and art and has taught English in China and Japan. Her photography has been shown in numerous exhibits throughout Maine. Betsy’s passion for wildlife, particularly birds, is reflected in her writing and photography.
