Poetry is important part of life today

-A +A
Thank you so much for assigning Stephanie Dumm to interview me and for publishing the really nice article she wrote (News Messenger, page A2, “Bell’s passion rings loud and clear”). I am very flattered that you called attention to my poem and my involvement in the Lincoln Poetry Club. Although I live in Citrus Heights, my association with that group gives me great pleasure. How wonderful it is that Lincoln has a newspaper so supportive of the creative arts. Thank you again for giving me so much space in your publication to speak out about the worth of poetry in our lives, the importance of preserving the printed word in this electronic age and the value of historic legacies. Stephanie was such fun to be with and did such a good job on that article. Margaret Bell, Citrus Heights
