Fuller’s poem to be on Garrison Keillor’s radio program

Published 11:37 am Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Catawba College’s Dr. Janice Moore Fuller, the Weaver Endowed Chair of Humanities, professor of English, and the institution’s writer-in-residence, will have one of her poems featured on Garrison Keillor’s daily radio program, “The Writer’s Almanac,” on Saturday.

Fuller’s poem, “My Aunt Raises Violets from Africa,” will be featured on Keillor’s show that is produced by American Public Media (APM).

In each program, Keillor presents a list of cultural events and anniversaries, many associated with literature and literary figures, then concludes with the poetry reading.

No North Carolina radio stations broadcast the show on Saturdays, so the only way to hear it is on the podcast, which is streamed and podcast from and archived on the APM website at http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org. The poem will also be included in the daily Writer’s Almanac email that Keillor sends to subscribers.
