Copper Mountain College Celebrates National Book Month with
Shared Visions: The Art Of Bill Dahl & Cynthia Anderson

Husband-and-wife team Bill Dahl, a photographer, and Cynthia Anderson, a poet, have collaborated on three books—Shared Visions, Shared Visions II, and In the Mojave. They will share their work, discuss their creative process, and describe how they publish their books at Copper Mountain College’s Bell Center Community Room on Thursday, January 16 from 12-12:45 pm.

Bill Dahl’s photographs have appeared in juried shows and won awards in the Morongo Basin as well as Santa Barbara and Ojai. He is self-taught, starting out in a conventional darkroom and switching to digital about 10 years ago. His special interests include photographing landscapes and desert curiosities.

Cynthia Anderson’s poetry has been widely published and won many awards. Locally, her poems have appeared in The Sun Runner Magazine, Writing From Inlandia, and Phantom Seed. She is the co-editor of an anthology titled A Bird Black as the Sun: California Poets on Crows & Ravens.

At 12:45, hear CMC students read their literary works from Howl Magazine. 

This event, part of the 3rd Thursday Cultural Series, is free and open to the public. The series is sponsored by the Cultural Educational Enhancement Committee and the CMC Foundation.
