at Loras in the Year of Retirement
Greetings! Finally, an update of this Donna Bauerly Loras College Website. Since my long-ago comments, I rejoiced in the publication by the Haiku Society of my biography, "Raymond Roseliep: Man of Art Who Loves the Rose." You can access purchase of this November 2015 biography through http://www.hsa-haiku.org/HSA-web-search.htm. Just enter the name of the biography, and you will get order and/or donation information. You can also purchase the bio from the Loras College Bookstore. Foundry Books in Mineral Point also has the biography in stock. River Lights in Dubuque, Iowa will order the biography for you upon request.
The biography received a gracious and very positive review by Michael McClintock in the latest "Modern Haiku" 47.2:2016, and a positive and enlightening review in "Frogpond" 39:2, Spring/Summer 2016 (official publication of The Haiku Society of America) by Lisa Higgs, Loras alum and a published poet. A text by Randy Brooks centered on the teaching of haiku contained this advance notice: "I am pleased to announce that a full-length literary biography, "Raymond Roseliep: A Man of Art Who Loves the Rose" by Donna Bauerly, has been published by the Haiku Foundation."
Retired living suits me well, and I still look forward to tutoring at Table Mound Elementary School. My question (and quest) just now is: What can an 82 year old woman with a 52 year teaching career offer to eager (or not so eager) young students these days?
