George Johnston on Writer's Almanac

I've been getting quite a few hits over the last few days from people in the States doing google searches for George Johnston. Turns out that Garrison Keillor has been broadcasting Johnston poems on "The Writer's Almanac." Here's Johnston's "Us Together." And here is his "Farewell to Teaching." There will be a third Johnston poem broadcast on the 24th, I'm told.

Related: my post on The Essential George Johnston, including me reading his poem "Veterans." (And for you copyright watchdogs out there, I got permission for this one.)

Also, a review of TEGJ in the Toronto Star by Barbara Carey.
