In 2015, I flew to NYC to see my work on display at @TheCradle of Aviation Museum on Long Island, NY. It was a heady experience. I share my story in the May/June issue of Southern Writers Magazine. Here’s a glimpse of the opening lines.
Three of my poems from the book Because I Fly (McGraw-Hill 2002, edited by Helmut H. Reda), are on display in this new exhibit which asks the question, “Why do we fly?” Most writers dream of getting their books on bestseller lists or made into movies, but how many authors see their work featured in a museum?
Aviators, Poets and Dreamers runs from July 18th through Labor Day. The exhibit will then travel to libraries across Long Island. A photo of my husband seated in an A-10 cockpit (circa 1980) appears with my poem, “A Little Boy’s Dream,” penned in 1986 when we lived in Alaska.
