Ariadne’s Notes: On August 1st, the World Poetry Cafe radio show, CFRO 100.5 FM, welcomed the exceptional Ruth Kozak to the show at 1 pm PST! We were lucky to have her on the show since she is leaving at the end of the month for Greece , Wales and time permitting, Crete. Ruth read several poems and part of of her beautiful volumes on Alexander the Great, the Shadow of the Lion. When she was on our last show, she described an (imagined) encounter with Alexander the Great which seemed magical and real to me. I hope she sees him again on the trip. The show also featured e-poet ,Paramananda Mahanta from India and Egyptian filmmaker Tarek Mounib, Free Trip to Egypt. Also a new story by Sharon Rowe for her second book!
On behalf of the World Poetry Team, celebrating our 21st year on the air, we wish Ruth a wonderful trip filled with knowledge and joy.
