As promised, here are the three bloggers to follow me in what is kind of a literary pub crawl.  The idea is to introduce writers and readers to one another in the writer’s own setting, their own blog-post.

Lucille Lang Day is the author of a memoir, Married at Fourteen: A True Story, which received a PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Literary Award and was a finalist for the Northern California Book Award in Creative Nonfiction. She has also published a children’s book and eight poetry collections and chapbooks, including The Curvature of Blue, The Book of Answers, and Infinities. Her short stories, poems, and essays have appeared widely in literary magazines. Her website is Twitter: @LucilleLDay. (Photo Credit: Marissa Bell Toffoli)
