Taking Refuge in Conversation: A Talk with Katherine Towler in The Square

The gorgeous new journal The Square (yep, it’s perfectly square–I checked) which focuses on arts and culture in the greater Portsmouth area, published a conversation between myself and my writer friend Katherine Towler. Katie is the author of, among many books, the forthcoming nonfiction book The Penny Poet of Portsmouth, which Publishers Weekly described as “a beautiful portrait of friendship and writing.” We strolled around the Great Bay Wildlife Refuge and talked about writing and other stuff with bulky binoculars dangling around our necks in case of fortuitous bird sightings that only happened in the parking lot. You can read the entirety of the conversation, minus the quavering in the cold, here: http://www.pageturnpro.com/Mclean-Communications-Inc/65380-The-Square–Spring-2015/index.html#28.
