This was an unexpected delight!
Almost immediately after arriving here in Johnson, Vermont for my residency, I learned that my old, dear friend, poet and teacher Rick Agran is now teaching at Johnson State College, just up the hill from where I am. We met for dinner and he invited me to be his guest on his weekly show Bon Mot (“good word” for all you non-French speakers!) at WGDR broadcast from Goddard College.
We spent 90 minutes together, listening to some of Jan’s recordings, (Stephen Foster’s Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair, particularly exquisite), talking about my process and Jan; I read from several pieces, including the book.
You can stream the podcast at the link below until next Tuesday Oct 18.

I’d love to hear from you! This was the first radio interview I’ve done, and it was a blast.
Thanks Rick and WGDR!
