An Interview with Jan Groft, author of Artichokes and City Chicken
I first met Jan Groft about ten years ago at the Lancaster Literary Guild. I was on the Board at the time and had just concluded a meeting with the Guild’s Director, Betsy Hurley. Jan was coming in as I was getting ready to leave and Betsy asked her if she’d like to write a profile on the author Dinty W. Moore for the Guild’s magazine, Rapportage. Jan was hesitant, worried that her friendship with Dinty Moore would somehow make the piece less honest. I got the job by default because I happened to be standing there. It was my first profile and I’ve loved writing them ever since. All because of Jan.
