What do America’s first botanists, a rare text from 1633, and dating before the Internet have in common? All have been the objects of Beth Feldman Brandt’s poetic investigations. On the page and on the stage, Beth evokes time and emotion with simple language that brings us back to universal experiences — the march of seasons, unpredictable journeys, and love in all of its combinations.
