Alexis Rotella news and Part 3 of her reading

Alexis Rotella will have one of her haiku read on Public Radio on February 14th. Here is a message she received from Travel with Rick Steves:

"We’ve selected your poetry submission from last year to use on an upcoming episode of Travel with Rick Steves. Your haiku about Venice will be read near the end of program #162, which airs the weekend of February 14, and includes callers about romantic travel destinations for Valentine’s Day. You should be able to hear it locally on WYPR 88.1 FM from Baltimore on Saturday afternoon, February 14 starting at 1pm Eastern time. (Travel with Rick Steves will debut this weekend on the WYPR stations.)"

You can also hear it online February 15th in the audio archives in the radio section of their website, as well as a podcast from i-Tunes and other podcast directories.

Congratulations Alexis!

Here is part three and the final video of the 1984 Great Swamp Reading that Alexis participated in at Morris County Community College. This installment features Alexis reading a number of her haiku.
