When I first toured the place, I questioned staff on what type of mural they’d like, because they’d be seeing it every day after all.

Women From Another Planet, edited by Jean Kearnes Miller, one of Kim’s first publications, a book by autistic women.

Kim’s Dervish painting appeared in Spirit Journal issue 1.

Note the ‘see, speak, and hear no evil,’ logo. This is designed by Kim’s son Jeremy Tucker, (a prolific Connecticut artist, photographer, and talented writer) and appeared on the cover of the first version of Under The Banana Moon. (pre-agent). The early edition was called Communication Breakdown and is still available online.
You will also come across another cover design of Kim’s memoir Under The Banana Moon. This is the 2nd style. In the current edition, there is an additional chapter and redesigned cover, and although it has some typos she’s working on, Kim urges you to buy the edition with her parents at Coney Island on the cover. 🙂 CONTACT her for a signed copy.

Planet Vermont Quarterly, is now defunct. Kim published several times with them.

Curbside Review published Kim’s long poem Expectant, which appears in her UTBM book.

Hearing Health published an article by Kimberly about her battle with hearing loss (this was before her implant).

New Haven Register. 2000? Photographer/reporter (Peter Casolino) came to Kim’s house to interview her. “Do you have any artwork?” he asked.

She pulled a self portrait out of the closet which she did not especially like and had ripped in half.

“I have an idea,” the reporter said.

They walked outside where the lighting was better, to take her picture for the newspaper article, which was about Kim’s writing publications.

“Hold it in front of your eyes.” he said.

Voila!

This is the shot that went into the article.
