WORDS ON A WIRE: Laura Cesarco Eglin
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/
This week's Poetic License features Melinda Palacio, author of "How Fire is a Story Waiting." Melinda talks about...poetic license.
Plus, Daniel & Ben talk about their upcoming reading in McAllen, Texas.
