Next Stop on the Rooted and Winged Blog Tour: Interview by The Book Connection

Today’s stop on the Rooted and Winged blog tour by Poetic Book Tours is an interview of me by The Book Connection. The photos I am sharing here of my maternal grandparents (in Kalamazoo) are to complement the interview.

You can find it here:

Grandma with baby me: this is the grandmother in poems like “Spotlight” and “Your Foot Bone Connected to Your Heart Bone”
With Grandpa at my 2nd birthday party: this is the grandfather in “Gravity” and “Spotlight”

  1. I really enjoyed the interview! and the poets you mention like Edna St. Vincent Millay, LM Alcott & Emily Dickinson. Very pleasant thank you both, was having trouble commenting thru Blogger but leave my comment here 🙂

    • Thank you, Jade! When I was in high school I got ahold (through the library) of a recording of Edna St. Vincent Millay reading “Renascence.” it blew me away. I keep trying to find it to listen to it again!

  2. Loved the interview. Best wishes on the book, Luanne.

  3. On my way to read the interview! I love the Grandma and Grandpa photos.

  4. I enjoyed the interview, Luanne, particuarly your love of place and your grandparents.

  6. Wonderful tour and interview!! 💐

  7. Great interview, Luanne. So glad to see you getting around the blogosphere 🙂

  8. Wonderful, Luanne – I particularly loved the picture of you with your grandpa!
    He looked so young and helpful to blow out the candle…hm…you might should write a poem about someone very young, very helpful.
    Or maybe you already did!

    • Wow, I just figured it out. He was only 48 here! How is that possible? I thought he was always old haha. He was a nice man and a character, both at the same time. Thanks, Sheila!!!
