Best of the Book Nook: Pursuit, by Erica Funkhouser

Closing out National Poetry Month with more poems.

22 years ago I interviewed the poet Erica Funkhouser. This is our only interview. When I went back and dusted this one off I realized that I had forgotten how much I enjoyed our conversation that day and this lovely poetry collection. Today I spoke at a luncheon for Friends of the Libraries at Wright State University. I was a talking to the president of that organization and she mentioned how much she had enjoyed this very interview, especially Erica's poem about the time a guy had caught her trespassing.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public LibraryClark County Public LibraryDayton Metro LibraryWright Memorial Public Library, and Tipp City Public.
