In Black Dirt Days: Poems as Memoir, Nan remembers sweltering summer nights at home on an Iowa farm, where the saying was, "It's so hot and humid you can hear the corn grow." She was a teenager in the 1950s when magazine color photos of heart throbs from the music and movie world were taped to her bedroom walls. Hear her read "Listen to the Corn Grow."
