Old Broads Waxing Poetic Cast

In honor of the Old Broads Waxing Poetic book launch
 - let's meet the creative cast of characters this week. 


Your eyes aren't deceiving you - our honorary Old Broad is Michael di Gesu. He volunteered his time to create the cover and back page, using the photo by Francesco Romoli.  Thanks, Michael.
check out his blog and support his creative efforts.


  1. It is indeed a fantastic cover.

  2. Hurray for Michael! I love the cover he designed for us.

  3. The cover is how I feel. Really. I am not close to the cane yet, but as I said in one of my poems, my father said he felt the same as always, until he looked in the mirror. I am not such a fan of the mirror these days, but the "mature" face in front of me was the one who wrote the Old Broad poems, so, there is something to be said for a few wrinkles and grey hairs.

  4. Michael did an exceptional job in bringing our vision of Old Broads to life!


  5. What a terrific idea, Joanne! (Julie clued me in on it.)

    I think Michael's cover is an enormous hit, and reflects how most of us feel, which is why it is so perfect.
