Happy Hour Book Signing: Lorraine Whittlesey, HAIKU YOU

On Friday, March 15, The Ivy opens its shop floor for a public party and meet-and-greet with Lorraine Whittlesey, author of HAIKU YOU from Baltimore-based Brick House Books! HAIKU YOU is a book that joins poetry and music – many of its haikus have been adapted into musical scores for flute. Join us for evening browsing and a celebratory spirit in honor of this innovative project supported by a beloved local press.

Books and drinks will be available for sale at the event.

Lorraine Whittlesey, composer, poet, and producer, was born in New York City, and studied T.V. and Film scoring at UCLA. She was a contributing writer and advisory board member for LINK: a Critical Journal. She was Composer-in-Residence for the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, and Project Director for the Computer Music Consort at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. Ms. Whittlesey has produced, written, and performed in many multi-media events which include the Walters Art Museum and the Creative Alliance. Her commissions and collaborations include “Einstein’s Dreams…(it’s about time) based on the NY Times best selling novel, “Einstein’s Dreams” written by Alan Lightman and Synaesthesia’s “Grave Mask” in collaboration with Poet Emerita, Clarinda Harriss. She has always appreciated Asian culture and been inspired by Haiku form and elegance.
