She spends a lot of time thinking and writing about what that means. In fact, Twentysomething is the name of her latest poetry book. She reflects on love and friendships, and being in that phase of life where you’re not a kid, but you’re maybe not quite an adult yet – and you can feel stuck. She visits with Main Street’s Ashley Thornberg ~~~ President Donald Trump continues to fill political appointments, and his nomination for a top science job at the Department of Agriculture is raising unique concerns.
