August 25, 2006

Meet the man who has written the poetry I have posted here over the past week and whose marvelously inspired words I have been setting to music. I was thrilled to find this little cache of interviews on Color In Colorado, a website that deals with bilingual children’s literature (FXA has 5 books of poetry for children). There is a full transcription of all the interviews there for those of you who prefer to read and not watch.

I spoke to Francisco yesterday to alert him to all that’s going on and he gave me his blessing, and told me he has a new collection of poetry coming out soon. Yippee!
