Seer, Scholar, and Crazy Cat Lady, Julia Gordon-Bramer was voted St. Louis’ Best Local Poet in 2013 by The Riverfront Times. Her book, Fixed Stars Govern a Life: Decoding Sylvia Plath (2014, Stephen F. Austin State U Press) unlocks Plath’s poems through tarot and Qabalah. Gordon-Bramer is a professional tarot card reader herself and listed as one of St. Louis’ Top Ten Psychics. When she’s not Plathing around, she is often taming feral cats. She is pictured below with Hermann, who, like Julia, is kind of, sort of, almost tame.
