Sarah Yerkes, at 101, published her first book of poems, “Days of Blue and Flame,” (Passager Books, University of Baltimore), having begun her foray into the literary world at 90 years young! Sarah started out as an architect, became a landscape designer, and in her 50s, took up sculpting–all the while married and raising her 4 children (one of whom passed away from leukemia at age 5). A chance encounter led to her attending a poetry writing class, which so intrigued her that she stuck with it, and voila! Some 10 years later, her first published work. Congratulations, Sarah!
