Author Debra Winegarten pops by to share with us about her latest book, the winner of the 2011 Poetica Magazine contest "There's Jews in Texas".

Previous author of several books including "Katherine Stinson the flying schhool girl" aboutKatherine Stinson who earned her pilot's wings in 1912, nine years after the Wright Brothers first flight. Katherine didn't start out to be a pilot; she was a piano player. Her music teacher told her she needed to go to Europe to continue her musical studies. The oldest of four children, with her parents separated, Katherine didn't have the money. She saw a newspaper headline that screamed, "Barnstormers Earn $1000 a Day," and her flying career was launched.

Can't wait to chat about her books and poems, new and old
