Parnassus Books welcomes Julia Tanner author of Picnic on the Fault Line.
Julia Tanner will present Poems and Cello, readings from her recently published book of poetry, Picnic on the Fault Line, interspersed with music which she will play on her cello.
There is a musical thread throughout much of the poetry, since Tanner is a professional cellist: a member of the Nashville Symphony for thirty seven years, and still an active studio musician. You can hear her playing on many
commercial and classical recordings, including several Grammy winners with the Nashville Symphony. A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she has also been writing poetry for most of her adult life. This collection of poems includes musings on life, love, music, faith, and what makes us human.
