Riding Shotgun: Women Write about Their Mothers interview on KCUR

Please join Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Judith Roitman, and myself as we read literary works about our mothers--from more of a cubist perspective than narrative. This is 3 p.m. Sun May 11 at the Writers Place in Kansas City.

I'll read from a personal essay recently published in a collection Riding Shotgun, with 20 other fine Midwest writers, including Jonis Agee, Heid Erdrich, Diane Glancy, Sunsan Power, Wang Ping--edited by Kathryn Kysar. Copies of Riding Shotgun, which is a best seller in the twin cities again this week, will be available for sale at a discount.

Angela Elam interviewed me about poet laureate-ness and this anthology on KCUR Friday.
