'Looking At Lemon: Transforming Life Through Literature' At UAlbany

Credit Matthew Akers

  Looking at Lemon: Transforming Life through Literature is a series of events focusing on the life and work of Lemon Andersen, a writer, performance artist, screen actor and Tony Award-winning poet.

Andersen is also a three-time felon who grew up in Brooklyn, the child of heroin addicted parents who died of AIDS before he was fifteen leaving Lemon an orphaned teenager fending for himself. A high school drop-out who spent years in jail and on probation, his attempts at rehabilitation faltered until he attended a poetry reading and found a sense of purpose in the art of words.

The series celebrates Lemon’s ability to find meaning in his life, discover healing in creative work and transform pain into art. He joins us in Studio A to tell us about his life and work. Also joining us, Kim Engel Assistant Director of the UAlbany Performing Arts Center.
