Local Kansas City Poet
Last year I had an opportunity to meet Gloria Vando - a local poet who did a presentation at the Maple Woods Community College's Annual Writers Conference. Gloria is a quite lively woman with an enthusiasm that is contagious... even from afar! I swear it's an airborne variety!
One of my favorites of hers is a AN ACT OF LOVE. I suppose perhaps because bread and its creation have always been a big thing in our family, it is something that I easily identify with. She had another one I loved but isn't on her site any longer. I'll have to see if I can locate it elsewhere.
Gloria is going to be at the Maple Woods Conference again in October. I'm anxious to see her again.
