Annie Ginder, Lancaster poet, will be featured June 21 at the Midtown Scholar.
Annie Ginder believes in the power of writing. Since she was 12 years old she has used it to maintain her own sanity and to know her own truth. Primarily a spoken word poet, Annie has performed at The Nuyurican Cafe in New York City, The Painted Bride Theater in Philadelphia, The Spoken Word Festival in Lancaster and in local coffee shops and bookstores.
Poet, singer-songwriter Annie Ginder is co-founder and program director at Writeface, a non-profit for veterans recovering from PTSD. It’s based in Lancaster County.
“Writeface wants to change the psyche of the nation one vet at a time” says Ginder. Using different forms of writing, poetry, music, metaphor and art, Writeface provides curriculums for veterans and their families to explore the reintegration process, giving them tools that can help them for the rest of their lives.
She lives in Lancaster County with her husband of 20 years, two teenagers, and diabetic dog. She looks forward to spending long summer evenings in her backyard, working in her garden, and sitting in the Adirondack chair her son made for her writing and reading poetry.
Ginder, will read at 8:05, after a brief open reading, which begins at 7PM.
