Coral Gables, FL.-- Ms. Meyer began writing poetry
when she was 15 years old. “To me, poetry is
a beautifully-worded prayer. It speaks of personal
observations and worldly hope, and sheds a new light
on life’s challenges and discoveries,”
At the age of 18, Ms. Meyer moved to Miami Beach,
where she opened her school called: “Miss Lenore’s
School of Speech and Drama.” She co-authored
a book for models and photographers called “Posing
for the Camera,” which was published by Hastings
House in New York and Focal Press in London, and translated
for publishing in eight languages.
During World War II, she entertained troops stationed
in Florida every Sunday. In 1948, she met and married
public relations guru, Hank Meyer.
After raising her family, Lenore returned to her
artistic talents and became an acclaimed sculptor.
She incorporated her love for her husband Hank, by
creating sculptures from his subconscious drawings.
She is bringing those sculptures to life by donating
them to meditation gardens along with her poetry,
to hospitals such as Mercy, Baptist Medical Center
in South Florida, and the St. Francis Medical Center
in Lynwood, California. Five sculptures adorn the
lobby of the Max Factor Foundation Lobby of the Cedars-Sinai
Medical Center in Los Angeles. “I believe that
art and poetry in medical environments can have a
therapeutic effect,” says Ms. Meyer.
New Theatre is located at 4120 Laguna St. in Coral
Gables. Tickets are $50 per person, as a tax deductible
