• Delmarva Today: Writers Edition #79 (3/27/20)

    Wilson’s guests are author Barbara Lockhart and Community Players of Salisbury actress Judy Hearn. The program features a reading by Judy Hearn of Lockhart’s short story “Liriope,” published in volume 12 of the Delmarva Review. The reading is followed by an interview withthe author.  Liriope is a stream of consciousness narration by a woman working to come to terms with her dead husband. Though dead, he is very much alive in her mind as she talks to him about her struggle with his mental illness. And even though he abandoned her in life he is very much present as his ashes that lay buried in the circle of liriope she tends in her garden.  The reading is moving and Barbara Lockhart, an excellent writer, is also very articulate. She offers great insight on both writing and what it means to live with someone who is bi-polar. CLICK TO LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE.
