Poet Connors Reads on KURU Today

Silver City poet Joanie Connors will read from her new book of poetry, Love Catalogue, on Friday, April 17 at 4pm on KURU 89.1 FM, as part of their pledge drive. Love Catalogue is a collection of 101 poems about the different kinds of love. The book is arranged into several chapters of love’s journey, including love misadventures, pain, healing and much more.

Joanie Connors is a psychotherapist and former teacher who lives in Silver City with her dog, Lila, and 2 cats, Honey Boy & Luna. She is mostly retired and helps a local group called the Great Old Broads for Wilderness in its work to save the Gila. She has been writing for 30 years, but didn’t become a poet until 13 years ago when she found herself writing down the love lessons she was witnessing in her client’s journeys.
