About the speaker
Lea Redmond is always looking for the poetry hiding inside things: a salt shaker, a clothes tag, a hand gesture, a cloud. She crafts objects, designs experiences, writes books, and plays with ideas. Infinitely intrigued by the way experiences can slip from the ordinary to the extraordinary, she endeavors to make things that hold this possibility. Her World’s Smallest Post Service project has charmed thousands with tiny mail. She is the author of many books, journals, and games, including Knit The Sky, Letters To My Future Self, Paint Chip Poetry and Lively Matter. Lea hosts one-on-one tea cup consultations in her semi-hidden tea room in Downtown Oakland, and will be opening a brick and mortar tiny post office this summer. Everyday wonder is Lea’s current fascination; a new book is in the works. Participate in projects and keep in touch with Lea at LeaRedmond.com.
