I read some poems from my newest book at the Myers Hotel Revue with musical accompaniment from some really talented musicians. It's the closest I'll ever get to being in a band. It was also one of the best experiences I've ever had. Huge thanks to Heidi Gluck and everyone I shared the stage with. What a special night!
It's been a busy semester, so I'm just getting around to making a bit of noise about Charlotte Seley's new book The World is My Rival. I'm so honored she asked me to share the stage on such a special night. Other featured readers were Courtney Faye Taylor and Cassandra Gillig. It was such a great night and I'm happy to have this book in my hands. Also, thanks to Chad for these pics :)
Such a joy reading last Thursday for the annual curator edition of the Big Tent Reading Series at the Raven Bookstore. It's one of my favorite events because I get to read alongside some pretty amazing local writers. Plus, it's a tradition to share new work, which is the best kind of exciting. Featured readers included Kelly Barth, Danny Caine, Andrew Farkas, Denise Low, and me :)
