September 2005-Interview with Mitch Luckett

Join writer Kerri Buckley for the monthly radio show, The Literary Cafe - A Production of Coast Community Radio; KMUN in Astoria, and KTCB in Tillamook.
..........................................................
In September, one of my favorite Pacific Northwest authors talked with me about his book, To Kill a Common Loon. Mitch Luckett came to Astoria and chatted about the significance of the loon, his character, Harp. P. Gravy, and how he'd lost his rhythm through a head injury. A couple of traumatic events led to the lead Gravy's only recourse of following what his Grandfather Two-Loons taught him as a boy, and allowing himself to shape-shift into a bird, a loon. It was one of the best Literary Cafe shows to date, and I found a poem by New England poet Hugh Ogden entitled Loons to cap off the show. An unexpected surprise was the same poem as a classically composed musical piece by Ogden's friend and composer, Evan Hause. It was a wonderful, earthy show.
