Elizabeth Kerlikowske wore Go-go boots and danced in a cage during high school. Later, she was a hippie then a feminist. Somehow she became a poet, wife, mother, professor and then visual artist. She can’t keep her hands out of things. She is the president of Friends of Poetry, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing people and poetry together. Twilight, Big Mosquito Lake is a tribute to her dad, who always insisted they drink gin and tonic in the summer.

"This is what I look like at a library author event, so boring. Writer Kathleen McGookey and I made Christmas cards."

  1. I think that will be how I’ll feel one day when in the mountains of Wyoming horseback riding. I’ll think of my dad who rode with me in places where we had to get off our horses and lead them out because we ran out of room to ride. 🙂
