LeBlanc's work featured at writing festival

Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies Diane LeBlanc, who also is director of the college’s writing program, was a featured writer at the Lutheran Festival of Writing hosted by Luther College in October.

“The festival is the kind of gathering that invites creativity in all forms,” says LeBlanc, whose participation included reading from her homemade miniature accordion book Bees in the Bee Balm: A Meditation on Work. “It was a gratifying exchange of published and new work. I found it a welcoming forum for sharing poems about vocation that I'd written as a Lilly teaching fellow at St. Olaf. Some of that work centers around family life and questions about the pull I feel toward art and poetry.” LeBlanc’s most recent book is Dancer With Good Sow.

David Oppegaard '02 also was a featured writer at the event.
