Award–winning local writer/photographer Charlie Hertan reads from Dream Catcher: Selected Poems by Lynn Kernan, his compilation of his late mother's poetry which was released in December 2006.   Kernan's evocative, elegant, & deeply moving work has received high acclaim from literary figures including Grace Cavalieri, long–time host of the Pacifica Radio program “The Poet & the Poem”, on which Kernan appeared as a featured poet.
