Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with the founder of the Between the Covers program, Sharon Wood Wortman, about The Big & Awesome Bridges of Portland & Vancouver—A Book for Young Readers and Their Teachers.
Sharon is a poet-performer, playwright, and author of three editions of The Portland Bridge Book, the last two editions with Ed Wortman. In 1991 she originated bridge walks for Portland Parks & Outdoor Recreation. Later she performed BridgeStories—A Storytelling Slide Show across Oregon.
In 2009 Sharon wrote and performed her own one-woman show, The Bridge Lady. And her poem “Engineered” kicked off More Foreplay at the Someday, a 2010 Fertile Ground Festival performance sponsored by the Portland Area Theatre Alliance.
