Flamingo Watching

If you'll indulge a little name dropping, earlier this month I had the privilege of meeting (well, literally running after, and awkwardly introducing myself to) Kay Ryan, who only weeks later was named Poet Laureate. Meghan O'Rourke has a terrific piece today on Ryan's poetry.

During our very brief conversation, I admitted that I'd read nothing of hers, and asked if she'd recommend something. "Flamingos...it's kind of what I started with as well."

She also wore classic Wayfarers. So very cool.
