Little Folksinger making a little one
Years ago, self-described Little Folksinger Ani DiFranco famously wrote a letter to the editor of Ms. magazine saying that she hoped her gravestone would read: "songwriter, musicmaker, storyteller, freak." Well, looks like she is going to have to add "mother" to that esteemed list.
Ani announced that she is expecting a little one February 2007, while accepting an award from the National Organization of Women this month. The father is music producer Mike Napolitano, who worked with Ani on her upcoming album "Reprieve."
Congratulations. Let's see how motherhood affects Ani's already deeply personal and penetrating lyrics.
