A great book launch for Gathered Light: The Poetry of Joni Mitchells Songs last night.
Sponsored by the UCONN Co-Op at the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History. I was proud to be published with John & Lisa Sornberger, Wally Lamb, the Thread City Poets, and all the writers in the book. Among those contributors present were: Steve Starger, journalist, editor, musician; Nathan Wise; Daryl Perch, who took lots of pictures; Bessy Reyna; Patti Parlette, who, like me, wrote about Joni's song, "California." Terese Karmel; Barbara Martin LaFlesh; Winky Gordon; Willa Correnti; Patricia Wilson; June Bisantz, Jon Anderson; Felicity Harley; Kristen Round Groves; Alexander Mack; Maureen Croteau; Pit Pinegar; and Jill Bullock McAllister. A wonderful evening to celebrate a wonderful book about a wonderful artist.
