Julia Vinograd
1943-2018
Julia, Berkeley, the famous "Bubble Lady" of Berkeley, California, is the city's all-but-official Poet Laureate: the mayor recently gave her a Lifetime Achievement Award. But she is much more than just a street poet: this very wise woman uses the urban scene, from tourists to homeless people, as a window on humanity (and sometimes inhumanity). She also offers unique takes on today's painful headlines. Her Jerusalem Poems, perhaps her finest work, picture that beleaguered city as a beautiful woman engaged in a long love-hate affair with God. Unfortunately, Julia passed away in December 2018. To buy her books, please go to her publisher, Zeitgeist Press (www.zeitgeist-press.com).
