Diana Der Hovanessian
Cambridge (MA) poet Diana Der-Hovanessian got some far-flung publicity recently. Her book, "Selected Poems," was being given out on Minnesota Public Radio to donors of $66 during its recent fund-raisier. Der-Hovanessian said she heard about it from her publisher, Sheep Meadow Press in New York. "I guess it's because of Garrison Keillor; he uses things from my books on `Writer's Almanac,'" she said, referring to his syndicated morning show, which is not carried in Boston. Keillor often reads the poem "Shifting the Sun." Der-Hovanessian is president of the New England Poetry Club.
