    Diane Glancy in Conversation with Kimberly Blaeser

    11:00 amMinnesota State Fairgrounds, Fine Arts Building, St. Paul, Minnesota

    Diane Glancy’s poetry and prose has long considered the entangled threads of community, history, and language. In her latest work, A Line Of Driftwood: The ADA Blackjack Story (Turtle Point Press), Glancy creates a new narrative based on the historical record of a young Inupiat woman who survived on a small island 200 miles off the Arctic Coast of Siberia for two years after traveling there as a cook and seamstress along with four professional explorers. At this special TCBF event, Glancy will be in conversation about the book and the fascinating history behind it with Wisconsin writer Kimberly Blaeser.
