Today I invited contributors of THANKU: POEMS OF GRATITUDE to share their work with you today. This picture book, beautifully illustrated by Marlena Myles and edited by Miranda Paul, is something really special and I credit that to the exceptional list of contributors that made it possible. Each poet used a different poetic style and each gives thanks in a uniquely personal way, but I’ll let them tell you about that.

Contributors on today’s episode (as they appear):

  • Joseph Bruchac
  • Kimberly Blaeser
  • Padma Venkatramen
  • Janice Scully
  • Charles Waters
  • Carole Lindstrom
