O Yeah. Check Her Out!
Lyn Lifshin -- prize-winning poet I just re-connected with (online, of course), since she moved away from this area a while ago. If you're into poetry at all, you've got to read Lyn. I remember taking a workshop that she was giving years ago when she appeared for her finale/reading dressed in her old wedding gown and high enough to turn the reading into a mangificent performance. She's reading her stuff not far from me next month, and you can be sure that I'll be there. She is amazing.
