Egrets Reading

Poetry Cafe

Today one of my local poet friends, Lois P. Jones, was interviewed on the Poetry Cafe at KPFK 90.7 FM in Los Angeles. The show highlights several of her poems with some conversation between Lois and host M.C. Bruce between poems, covering topics such as ephrastic poetry, how Picasso treated his women, Lois's work on a documentary on the wine industry in Argentina, and what the "P." in her name really stands for. (It stands for something different than the "P." in mine).

She reads some spectacular pieces - so if you have some time to listen to the recording of the radio broadcast, I'd recommend clicking on the above link. There are a few typical radio station ads at the beginning of the recording, but it goes by quickly and gets into the poetry before you know it. The show should remain online for another 89 days.
