Healdsburg Literary Laureate Emerita Vilma Ginzberg launches I Don't Know How to Do This, poems on aging, her latest poetry volume.

From the California Arts Council:

"Vilma Ginzberg was born the year Lindbergh soloed the Atlantic, was married once, widowed early, a mother once, grandmother once, is a Mozartophile, peace activist, and is career psychotherapist now retired to Northern California. She indulges in gardening, enjoys music, the arts, and writing."

This fourth volume of poetry follows Colors of Glass (2004) and Murmurs & Outcries (2007) and Snake Pit (2010).

Ginzberg was co-editor with Doug Stout of the anthology Present at the Creation (2006) and is currently working on a memoir, When the Iris Blooms."

Psychotherapist and executive coach Anelisa MacBean says of the book:

candid and poignant ..... dilemmas, anxieties, surprises and joys of getting older ..... [told] with wit and wonder ..... tells the truth, whether funny or painful to hear ..... leaves readers intimately connected, more accepting of themselves ..... a wonderful gift to anyone navigating the frontier of gowing old.

Vilma's work is inspirational; that of course would follow to all who know her, love her and have been eternally touched by her presence on this plane, and by her wonderful writings. I get lost in her poetry: it's always like opening an unexpected present filled with staggering insight. Bill Biggers

Vilma's new work, "I Don't Know How to Do This," is incredible. While the tagline is "poems on aging," don't be fooled into thinking it is a book about getting old. It is a book about the changes our bodies can go through at any age and about accepting them or working through those changes in the best ways we can. "I Don't Know How to Do This" is a book for those who have experienced the disappointments and the joys of living. It is about living vibrantly and victoriously, with grace and fortitude.
