Welcome to the Reckoning Press podcast. Reckoning is a nonprofit, annual journal of creative writing on environmental justice. This podcast will feature very occasional poetry, fiction and essays from the journal, plus interviews with the authors. I’m Michael J. DeLuca, publisher, and also the editor of Reckoning 2.
This is our second episode, and it’s long. If you’ve got a couple hours’ drive ahead of you, preferably over forested hills wrapped in summer haze, this’ll be perfect. Here’s Jess Barber reading “Lanny Boykin Rises Up Singing”, her novelette from Reckoning 2, with musical assistance from Gillian Grogan.
Jess’s bio is below; to learn more about her vocal accompaniment, try gilliangrogan.com.
I defy you to listen to this, or read it, and not find the title come back singing in your head every once in awhile, reminding you there’s still beauty in the world.
