Here’s a photo of me along with a few of my fellow Illinois poets: (left to right) Cathy Cronin, Michelle Schaub, Carmela Martino, Heidi Bee Roemer, Pat Cooley, me, and Kimberly Hancock.  We each had a poem selected and featured in the new sports poetry anthology, And The Crowd Goes Wild: A Global Gathering of Sports Poems, published in Fall 2012. Together we visited a number of local bookstores and libraries, sharing our poems, the stories behind our work, and offering fun activities for kids who came out to particiapte in our event.
