Sharon Watts


Sharon Watts spent thirty formative years in New York City, soaking up street energy. She's been, at different times: an art school student, a wine stewardess in a kosher-Chinese restaurant, a fashion illustrator, an assemblage artist, and an archivist of things both inconsequential and of enormous meaning. She compiled a book in 2007 - "Miss You, Pat:
Collected Memories of NY's Bravest of the Brave, Captain Patrick J. Brown" as well as a collection of short, poetic, post 9/11 essays in "Back To My Senses" (2013). She is finishing a memoir of her art student days in the early 1970s, "Hell's Kitchen and Couture Dreams." But sharing the front burner is "Smile!—The Music, Life, and Times of Bert Sommer," a book about singer-songwriter Bert Sommer, whose first live gig happened to be Woodstock. Then he slipped through the cracks.
