Mary sat at her dining room table, in front of the picture window overlooking her yard and the mountains, that inspire many of her poems. She was musing over the idea that so many people buy her poetry books. Trying to make sense of it in a practical way. Maybe she said it’s because her poems are uplifting and people need that now. I told her I thought that was part of it, although Mary’s poems cover a wide range of emotions and deal equally with the realities of life. I told her I think it’s because her poems are accessible. People can relate to them and understand them. And her story is a marvelous one. Writing poetry since she’s 11 years old and never telling anyone. She continued to write throughout her life, then told her secret to Jon when she was in her late 70’s. Since then we’ve published three books of Mary’s poetry and they sell like crazy.
Like all of Mary’s books this one has photos in it by Jon Katz.
