Two poets on mothers, daughters and loss

This week host, Diana Moxon, takes a look back at two conversations she had with Columbia-based poets Lynne Jensen Lampe and Barbara Harris Leonhard in October and November last year. Both Barbara and Lynne had recently released collections of poems, both of which explored their relationships with their mothers and the complications that post partum depression and alzheimers had on their time together. Their collections of poems are eloquent, moving, sad and funny, and both Lynne and Barbara shared the background to their collections with Diana.
