Jo McDougall

Poetry

Interviewed by: Donna Trussell

Catalog Number: 19871113

Even though she didn’t begin to write in earnest until her children were grown, Jo McDougall admits that she always felt “a terrible need to write.” A native of the Arkansas delta , she writes poetry that often incorporates the folklore she absorbed growing up in that landscape. Here she reads from The Woman in the Next Booth, her first full-length book of poems. Interviews with Jo McDougall from 2002 and 2017 are also available in our Audio Archives.
