I just wanted you to know that Lori did a fabulous job of reading her poem at Third Place Books last night. I am so proud of her. She was so brave to stand up there in front of all those people and read her beautiful, personal poem. I never could have done it.
And, for the record, quite a few people did make the “ummmmm” noise after Lori’s poem. In fact, hers was the only poem that got that reaction, but this time it felt right. It may have been karma, but it was good karma. No payback — this time.
