Jared informs us that because there are two readers (the other is
Debra Magpie Earling), the program might last until 9 p.m., or thereabouts. Poet
Laureate Ted Kooser will introduce both readers.
Jared, our warmest and sincerest congratulations and best wishes go with you, and as we say in these parts (Nashville), "We know you'll do us'ns and your'ns proud." Oh, and "Chalk one up for the good guys!" -- MRB
