Edmonds Community College English instructor Sarah Zale reads from her poetry collection, "The Art of Folding," 12:30 p.m., Mon., May 17 in Triton Union 202. Zale, faculty adviser for the student Peace and Justice Club, is an advocate of discussion, storytelling, and poetry of witness about war and conflict. Her new collection of poems, The Art of Folding (Plain View Press, 2010), was inspired by her travels to Israel and the West Bank with the Compassionate Listening Project.
Zale was a 2009 Fellow to the United States Institute of Peace and earned her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing/Poetry from Goddard College. Her work also appears in the anthology Come Together, Imagine Peace (Bottom Dog Press), a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award 2009 (along with works by fellow English instructors Holly Hughes and Martha Silano).
