96 year old postcard poet Alice Glover

Alive Alice Glover Interview

August 19, 2022
by Paul Nelson
The 2022 fest is winding down and registration for 2023 begins on September 1. A new postcard poet saw my stash here at Casa del Colibrí and said: “I’m going to get intro Group 1 next year!” Yes, the hardcores sign up right away. And what could be more hardcore than writing 40+ postcard poems when you are 96? Meet Alice Glover, mother of postcard legend Ingrid Bruck, with whom we had a chance to chat on August 12, 2022 about her love of postcards and her life. Thank you Alice! You are an inspiration.

    Imagine my delightful surprise to see Alice Glover and hear her in person. I’ve really enjoying being her pen pal. I loved the fan poem she sent me this year and yes, we are corresponding with each other, from Coleraine, MN to NY. Thank you Paul for the insightful interview. I learned some new things that I can write to her about.
