Kristen Berkey-Abbott, PhD, general education program coordinator for The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, recently published a poetry book titled Life in the Holocene Extinction.

 

Berkey-Abbott’s poems explore elements of modern life that give people hope in the face of everyday stresses faced individually, as a culture, and as a planet.

 

Life in the Holocene Extinction is Berkey-Abbott’s third book. Her other collections of poetry include Whistling Past the Graveyard and I Stand Here Shredding Documents.

 

Berkey-Abbott has worked at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale since 2002. She holds a Master of Science and a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina.
