WORDS ON A WIRE: Donna J. Snyder

donna_snyder_cover.jpg

  Daniel talks with Donna J. Snyder about her latest collection, Poemas Ante el Catafalco: Grief and Renewal.  The book was born out of recent losses suffered by Donna in recent years and the ways she found renewal over time.  As Daniel describes her, she is a "white woman" who very easily fits into the Chicano writer community.  Follow Donna on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DonnaJoSnyderPoet

Donna Snyder reads today's Poem of the Week, "Minnow Slip of the Finger" from Poemas Ante el Catafalco: Grief and Renewal.

Local writer and retired math teacher Azucena Dominguez shares her Poetic License with us, "Singing to All," which explores youthful memories of singing songs to anyone who would listen.

And Daniel shares some words of wisdom from the Talmud.
