Joannie Kervran Stangeland


Joannie Kervran Stangeland is entering the second half of her life, and I am excited to be among those who welcome her across the threshold! We will be gathering Monday, Feb 1 at the Columbia City Cinema to eat chocolate cake, share some poems, and raise our glasses to a woman of many gifts and talents, including being an exceptional friend and poet.

Here's a favorite poem of mine, from her chapbook Weathered Steps.

Happy birthday, Joannie.

Susan: Let's set a Fresh date!

Rams: She looks even younger in person.
