Book Nook: Light in the River by David Lee Garrison


Vick Mickunas' 2020 interview with David Lee Garrison

"Light in the River" by David Lee Garrison

Regular listeners have probably heard David Lee Garrison reciting his poetry on WYSO. When the late Conrad Balliett hosted Conrad's Corner he would share David's poetry with listeners. Now David is one of the curators of the poetry that you hear on Conrad's Corner.

David stopped by the Book Nook to talk about his new collection. "Light in the River," and I was able to persuade him to read some of his poetry. Some of these poems made me chuckle. Others had me reflecting upon my own mortality. This is an impressive collection.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library, Clark County Public Library, Dayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.

Vick Mickunas introduced the Book Nook author interview program for WYSO in 1994. Over the years he has produced more than 1500 interviews with writers, musicians, poets, politicians, and celebrities.
