Let’s say you’re given the enviable, if intimidating, task of picking up internationally acclaimed novelist/poet/essayist/activist Margaret Atwood from the airport. What’ve you got bumping on the stereo for the ride???
My money’s on Prince & Iron Maiden. Check out the full playlist in my latest post for the blog section of The Missouri Review…

I had a blast last month performing at the latest edition of Mr. Hip Presents, Boston’s best new reading series. A monthly evening of poetry & music @ The UFORGE Gallery in Jamaica Plain. It was a packed house of cool people, some super-talented poets, plus a live band…AND it was classy. (Trust me, you haven’t lived until you’ve heard a jazz rendition of T-Pain’s Blame It in an art gallery).
I definitely encourage you to check out a future show.

Here we go with the second installment of my new every-other-week segment for the The Missouri Review‘s blog wherein I curate and comment on the “perfect playlist” for picking up notable literary figures (poetry or prose, alive or dead) from the airport. Up this time was Pulitzer Prize winning poet Tracy K. Smith. The list features some Joy Division, Sun Ra, a little Madvillain, and of course David Bowie (Smith’s most recent collection was named Life on Mars after all). Take a look, give it a listen, I hope you enjoy!

Check it out! My good friend was assigned to interview author Colson Whitehead and pick him up for the airport. I jokingly mentioned that she should make a playlist for the occasion. One thing led to another and I ended up creating this, which has been picked up by the AMAZING literary journal The Missouri Review for their blogs section. Every other week I’ll be curating and commenting on what I believe to be the best playlist for driving a wide variety of writers and poets (living or dead) to and from the airport. So glad to be working with such a great publication on this.
My 1st post is HERE.
