Wooster alum and poet Danny Caine recently appeared on the radio program hosted by David Folkenflik, On Point, discussing his favorite books of the year. He was joined by Amanda Nelson and Clay Smith. You can listen to the program, and learn more about the guests here.
I met Danny when I was still in high school, attending a summer writing workshop at John Carroll University. I was inspired by Danny’s love of writing, and his dedication to helping young writer’s succeed. When I told him I was considering the College of Wooster for college, he was thrilled, and told me that he had conducted a creative senior independent study during his time at Wooster.
With the guidance of Daniel Bourne, Artful Dodge’s founder and editor, Danny completed his senior independent study at the College of Wooster. Today, he is the proud owner of Raven Books, an independent bookstore in Kansas. You can learn more about the great work of his bookstore here.
Danny also has a new book of poems, Continental Breakfast, being released by Mason Jar Press in the coming months. Keep an eye out for his work!
On behalf of everyone at Artful Dodge, congratulations Danny on all of your accomplishments!
