Perhaps some of you remember that I am headed out on the “Giving Motherhood a Voice” Upper Peninsula book tour later this week.
Three of us will be reading our contributions from An Anthology of Babes: 36 Women Give Motherhood a Voice, edited by Suzi Banks Baum. Singer/songwriter Terri Bocklund will perform. We’ll talk about motherhood and creativity with time for audience participation.
This morning Stan Wright from Northern Michigan University Public Radio interviewed me.
I was so nervous! My heart pounded and fingers tingled. I haven’t been interviewed on the radio in many years and felt sure it would be a fountain of stuttering, nervousness and dire mistakes.
However, the dire mistakes were few. (A couple minor goofs.) I remembered to relax and breathe from the abdomen and stay somewhat centered.
Here is the nine minute interview if anyone’s inclined to listen. One of my good buddies, another Susan, said it felt easy and natural, like sitting across the table from me. Hope you enjoy.
Would LOVE to see any friends who might be in the following places later this week:
Thursday, August 14, Escanaba Public Library, Escanaba, Michigan 6:30 p.m.
Friday, August 15, Peter White Public Library, Marquette, Michigan 2 p.m.
Saturday, August 16, Joy Center of Ishpeming, Ishpeming, Michigan, 6:30 p.m.
It should be a lot of fun!
