In 2013, one year after the death of her husband, poet Morton Felix, acclaimed ceramic artist Susan Duhan Felix, Berkeley's Arts Ambassador, asked friends in her far-flung art and literary circles to write a poem for her birthday.
Thirty friends and family rose to the occasion, from Susan Griffin, poet and nonfiction author, to Al Young, California Poet Laureate emeritus, to novelist Jonathan Lethem, to poets and translators Anita Barrows and John Oliver Simon. The poems were then presented in a series of celebratory events during an exhibition of her artwork at a Berkeley Gallery. Those joyful and spirited readings then inspired more poems, and Stay Amazed was born. This collection also features poems by Morton Felix and Lisa Felix-Smartt, Susan's daughter, with an Introduction by Lisa on the origins of her poems for Morton, her father, and her mother.
The fourth in a series of these readings, contributors will read their particular contribution to the collection or on the theme of wonder or amazement. Susan Duhan Felix will be at the event. Sales of Stay Amazed benefit Poetry Flash.
