Lucille Clifton is my absolute favorite poet in the world.
Today, February 13, 2011, is the one-year anniversary of Poet Lucille Clifton’s passing. It’s been a tough year, and a lonely year, too, with my grief. I will admit that.
Now, I usually just let y’all decide which of my “You Gotta Read This” podcasts you want to listen to all on your own, because all of y’all are grown and I don’t like to be pushy. But this Lucille Clifton podcast was a moment I haven’t ever experienced; it was really a blessed evening.
Hey Y’all, I just wanted to remind you of the special Lucille Clifton birthday podcast on Sunday, June 27 at 7:30pm EASTERN on Talkshoe.com. I will be joined by five fabulous sisters: Sidney Clifton, Elizabeth Alexander, Kelly Norman Ellis, Nikky Finney, and Lyrae Van Clief Stefanon.
In honor of Miss Lucille’s birthday, I will conduct a special Sunday celebration podcast on Sunday, June 27, 2010 at 7:30pm EASTERN on Talkshoe.com with Sidney Clifton, Elizabeth Alexander, Kelly Norman Ellis, and Lyrae VanClief- Stefanon.
