Karren LaLonde Alenier

Author's Bio

I'm a poet first and one who writes opera libretti from a series of poems. My book ON A BED OF GARDENIAS: JANE & PAUL BOWLES crosses between poetry, fiction, play-wrighting. These poems form my libretto HOW MANY MIDNIGHTS, a project I'm working on with composer John Supko. I also write about opera, both essays and reviews. Gertrude Stein is often my subject matter.
