Congratulations, Nancy, on these nice reviews and listings. Your book deserves every accolade. It is a master piece in the writing and in the compilation of the poems to tell your story in verse.
Your reading at City Lights was delightful and the audience most enthusiastic. Even though I have read your poetry so many times, I never tire of hearing them read.

Thank You Glenda. It is all amazing to me, especially the blurbs on the back of the book and the review by Rob Newfeld in the Asheville Citizen-Times. I feel like I am walking in a dream.

Thanks for coming to the celebration yesterday.
