WORDS ON A WIRE: Liz Scheid
Daniel & Ben talk with Liz Scheid, author of the collection of essays, "The Shape of Blue: Notes on Loss, Language, Motherhood & Fear." Liz is also a poet, and she explains how poetry informs her writing. She also talks about the notes that are found at the end of each essay in "The Shape of Blue." Those notes, far from being purely academic, are almost essays themselves. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Shape-of-Blue/737257809618871?ref=stream
Liz Scheid will read the poem "Magic" for this week's Poem of the Week.
In this week's Poetic License, native El Pasoan Paul Pedroza reads "The Rain Parade."
And...Ben & Daniel talk about elegies and epitaphs.
