Leslie Prosterman has recently published her first poetry book, Snapshots and Dances, with Garden District Press (New Orleans, 2011). Her poetry has appeared in several collections and publications, including The Folklore Muse (Utah State University Press) and First Literary Review-East, and will be published in From Somewhere to Nowhere: The End of the American Dream (forthcoming, Spring 2013). She has been a featured reader/performer at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, West Tisbury Library, at the George Mason University Fall for the Book Festival, and at Nora Laudani’s Vaudeville Nights in Vineyard Haven. In December the Erika Thimey Dance and Theater Company will present a dance concert created around Snapshots and Dances, at which Prosterman will also perform and read. A cultural activist in the conservation of grassroots culture and civil society, she is also a sometime student of trapeze. It is probably also evident that in a former life she was an academic, but that will pass.
