Earlene Grey Books- Tea Talk Presentations (The History, Facts, and Poetry of Tea)

A tea talk by Susan Patterson is a presentation that will not soon be forgotten.  You will find her work a compilation of uplifting wisdom concealed in simplicity.  She is intelligent, witty and marvelously ordinary all in the same package.  It has been said, “She is a modern voice in the heritage of Emily Dickinson.” Mrs. Patterson is a weekly guest on an international podcast out of England, where her work is very well received.

In her talk, Mrs. Patterson will offer a history of tea, interesting and usable tea facts and of course, her world famous poetry.  One might think the topics of tea and poetry may sound boring and dull, but we assure you, your audiences will be mesmerized by her readings.       Please visit www.EarleneGrey.com and www.TheCauserie.com for more information.

Susan Patterson has five published books and can make any of them available to your audiences in lieu of a speaking fee. She also posts a weekly blog, The Causerie. Her books are:

  • Musings With a Cuppa-The Poetry of Tea
  • Heart to Heart-Considered Sentiments for Teatime
  • Tom and Irma-Chronicles of the 1950’s
  • Unnoticed Moments (a collection of contemporary poetry)
  • Passions (a collection of poems that speak of passion and love, from the sensible to the seductive.)

We have asked her to join us again at our Christmas meeting.” Dolores Smith, Oak Lodge Garden Club
