Sandra Wade

Celebrating the Life and Works of

Sandra Wade

Sandra Wade

1944 - 2017

Born in Hertfordshire, England, Sandra Wade came to Lake County in 1970, settling in Lower Lake in 1977.

Sandra served as President of the Lake County Writer's Guild, helped publish numerous magazines, and was instrumental in establishing the Lake County Arts Council in the early 1980s.

Selected as Lake County's Poet Laureate in 2006, she encouraged creative writing and open mics throughout the county, spearheaded the Poetry Out Loud program in local high schools, and represented Lake County by attending gatherings of Poets Laureate..

Sandra was active in the creation and growth of KPFZ 88.1 FM, the county's first FCC-licensed, listener supported radio station, serving as an LCCR Board member and Board President, and hosting "Accent on Words," a weekly literature program. According to founder and Station Manager Andy Weiss, "Sandra was always a great lover of community radio--because community radio is composed of unique sounds and ideas--both of which she embraced. She brought those qualities to the early days and the seeding of KPFZ."

She returned to England, where she continued to be active in the Arts community.
