I have no idea how this happened but I got an e-mail from National Public Radio (USA) yesterday to confirm if a poem from my book ‘fuck off and die’ was mine because they were going to read it on air. .. um that’s not my book title… it’s my solo show. The title or words in the poem they were using were not mentioned in the e-mail.
I wondered: How did they know about me? How did they get my Teen Angst book and my solo show mixed up? Did they see the show? Hmmmm.
This is the mention (with the correct pronunciation of my name- yay!) : http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=99213307
When I listened, it sounded familiar but I didn’t remember publishing those words- not even online. Then it took me forever to figure out where I wrote those words.

Tres bizarre- how did they every come across that? It’s quite the obscure reference.
Oh well. It’s a great program and I’m honored to be mentioned on it, even quoted. But I still can’t figure out how they came across that.
NPR!!! Yay Sara!
