EPISODE 24 GRANDMA CHAPMAN’S POETRY

DIRECT LINK TO EPISODE 24.  I STARTED AUDIO PODCASTING MY GRANDMOTHER’S POETRY LAST YEAR EACH WEEK WHEN I WAS WRITING MY FOURTH CHILDREN’S FANTASY, MR. WUGIDGEM AND THE SNOW QUEEN.  GRANDMA WROTE HER POETRY BETWEEN 1917 AND 1969, A COPY OF WHICH SHE GAVE ME IN JULY 1969.  I HAVE REDISCOVERED HER TALENT, PARTICULARLY AS I BEGAN TO READ THEM ALOUD LAST YEAR.  WHEN I FINISHED SNOW QUEEN, I BEGAN PODCASTING THOSE EPISODES, AND STARTED THE FIFTH MR. WUGIDGEM ADVENTURE, FACES OF FREEDOM.  I HOPE TO FINISH IT THIS MONTH AND BEGIN PODCASTING IT NEXT MONTH.  I WILL CONTINUE READING FROM GRANDMA CHAPMAN’S POETRY AND FROM MY FATHER’S NON-FICTION ADVENTURE TALKING TO THE WORLD FROM PAN AM’S CLIPPERS.  TODAY’S POEM IS ENTITLED MY TRIP TO LONG ISLAND.  PERHAPS THIS WILL EVOKE MEMORIES OF YOUR GRANDMOTHER AS WELL.
