For Sheroes #11: Dusty Springfield, we were so glad to invite the award-winning author Jeanette Lynes.
Jeanette coordinates the MFA writing program at the University of Saskatchewan. She is the author of five collections of poetry, including It’s Hard Being Queen: The Dusty Springfield Poems, aaaand has had a novel shortlisted for the prestigious Giller Prize. (But we’ll confess that we first found out about her through the equally prestigious Dusty Springfield fansite.)
