Good morning,

I came across this link and just like Aleis above I would love to get in contact with Ms. Lucca. She was my teacher in elementary school.

Is it possible for the author or contact person here to provide her e-mail address? I know it's a long stretch.

Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks.

I am not surprise for this event. Ms. D. Lucca is a great poet and very enthusiastic about poetry and Lain Culture. I am glad that I could read this article. Congratulations!!!

I would love to be able to contact Ms. Carmen D. Lucca. Will be possible? I lost track of her when I moved to Miami from NY in 1990.
Please help me to get in contact with her. Thanks
