AIR SCHOONER INTERVIEWS
When I was in Nebraska for the Prairie Schooner launch, Scott Winter of Air Schooner recorded the writers over the course of the few days. I had already been interviewed so he asked me to tell a joke instead. I cannot tell jokes. Luckily the recording was poor so Scott re-told the joke himself :)
The first voice you hear is Schooner editor Kwame Dawes. Have a listen - you'll hear Aidan Rooney reading; then Sandra Bunting at the reception talking about what Ireland means to her and to North Americans; Karen Babine reads part of an essay on Galway, where she lived for six months; last up is Aidan Rooney with an amusing/frightening poem on the Troubles.
