Nikky Finney at NBA

Big ups to Nikki Finney for winning the National Book Award! So wonderful. Head Off & Split is a wonderful book. Her acceptance speech is amazing!

I had a chance to meet her this year at a reading at Leslie University. She gave me some sage advice about my second manuscript that came just about the time I was having serious doubts about the collection. (Thank you, Nikky.)
What a triumph!

That was absolutely amazing! I am speechless.

Jan, Thanks for putting this out there.

P.S. I'm dying to know what her sage advice was.
