Our 50th Year Icon

Ellen Bass and Danusha Laméris have been Sun contributors since 2001 and 2008, respectively, and have participated in our readings, events, and writing retreats across the country. They’re also neighbors, close friends, and collaborators. As part of our ongoing celebration of the magazine’s fiftieth year in print, we asked them each to choose a poem by the other for this month’s Dog-Eared Page. We start with a conversation in which they discuss their shared history and why they selected the poems that follow.
