Granny Vee [Margo Van Veen] was born in the Netherlands, lived in France, became a French teacher, translator, environmentalist, political activist, satirist, and poet, and last but not least, an American citizen. She has lived in the Bay Area since the early seventies, volunteered for the Sonoma County Peace and Justice Center in the eighties, was a volunteer coordinator for the Sierra Club in the nineties and became a Sonoma County Raging Granny in the 2000’s. She won a literary award from the SRJC, and first prize in a nationwide French essay contest of the Alliance Française. She encourages everyone to frequent the Third Sunday Salon in Healdsburg and to check out the county-wide poetry slams organized by the Sonoma County Library, where she is regularly heard, and where she made it to the finals twice (third place). A self-published songbook, “Have your-self an alternative wee Christmas,” is unfortunately out of print.
