Check out I Heart Local Musics's photo gallery featuring performances from Femme Fest 2019 in Lawrence, KS. I shared the stage with local musicians, read new poems, kept my coat on the entire time, and if you really want to know, it all went very well.
So excited to be performing at this year's Femme Fest! Shout out to Grace D. Chin for designing this gorgeous flyer.
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 :)
