2013 Book Festival Author
Sarah Gilbert

Sarah Gilbert began writing poetry in response to her second of four cancers arising from Lynch Syndrome, a hereditary cancer syndrome. Her other poems come out of the sweep of life, from childhood to marriage and parenting, aging and dying parents, and observations of nature. She is currently at work polishing a manuscript of cancer poems. Her work has appeared in Fox Cry Review, the WFOP Calendar, Faith of Followers, and Sharing Widely Living Deeply.

In addition to time spent writing, Gilbert volunteers in several capacities, including coordinating monthly poetry readings at Harmony Cafe in Appleton, serving as a regional VP with the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (WFOP), and as the Wisconsin representative of Lynch Syndrome International.
