WORDS ON A WIRE: Laura Cesarco Eglin



Melinda Palacio with her Poetic License!

  Ben & Daniel talk with Laura Cesarco Eglin, author of "Tailor Shop: Threads" and "Sastreria."  Lau (as she likes to be called) talks about finishing her first book while studying at UTEP, and what events inspired her book "Sastreria."  Lau describes herself as a tailor of words, following in the footsteps of her maternal grandfather, who himself was a tailor of clothes.  She also talks about negotiating her time for writing and pursing a PhD.  

For today's Poem of the Week, Lau reads her poem, "Kaddish and Rachamim."   http://laucesarco.blogspot.com/
