  1. This is wonderful news, Lynette!

    When I attended the Catamaran Conference last summer on scholarship, I met a brilliant poet named Jericho Brown. When he told us he was influenced in part by one of my mother’s favorite writers Langston Hughes, I bought both his books for her there and had them signed, of course! 🙂

    I’m curious if you’re familiar with his work?

    Jericho was an incredible orator – he was the best speaker we had among the handful of bestselling authors including Ellen Bass, Karen Joy Fowler, and Robin Hemley.

    Jericho’s work is extremely powerful and intense. Here’s his site:

    1. Thank you so very much Dyane. I’m not familiar with his work but now that you’ve given me his website, I’ll be correcting that. Thanks again.
