Professor Emeritus from Ohlone College Publishes Haiku and Photography Collection
Fremont, CA—Ohlone College Professor Emeritus Cynthia Lee Katona may have retired from thirty-six years of teaching at Ohlone College, but she is still hitting the books. Writing and publishing books, that is. This November she published, not one, but four books, which are comprised of both original photography complimented by original haiku poems. Imagine My Surprise, I Hate When That Happens, Maybe…and That’s Final, and Was It Good For You? are a collection of Katona’s fondest photography projects and mark her debut as a haiku writer. Her books depict the world through her lens, from photographs of everyday moments, to travel experiences.
Cynthia Lee Katona is a retired professor of English and Gender and Women’s Studies Literature at Ohlone College. She has been a nationally published photographer for the last forty years, and has already published two books, “Book Savvy” (2005) and “Modern Ivory Netsuke” (2008).
15-page previews of her four newest books, Imagine My Surprise, I Hate When That Happens, Maybe…and That’s Final, and Was It Good For You? are available on blurb.com, where the e-book versions can be purchased for $3.99.
