A Winter Poem for July

July 12, 2016

Here is a poem I had published in Great Lakes Review, as part of their Narrative Map project. I’m really glad this publication is seeking to feature writers from the “Middle Coast,” known historically as flyover territory in a variety of ways. It runs alongside this picture I took after a snowstorm, when I skied to work to open the tiki bar.

We had an interview and multi tracking assignment in my journalism class. I chose to cover a book release event at Woodland Pattern for Re-Collecting Blackhawk: Landscape, Memory, and Power in the American Midwest. Give a listen to this 2 minute audio piece.

On a whim I stopped by for a free test ride of the new Harley Davidson Roadster 1200. Afterwards I spoke with Chuck Quirmbach and ended up on national NPR. Give a listen.
