D.C. Reading

Last Monday I read at Cafe Muse with poet W.T. Pfefferle (author of My Coolest Shirt). I was thrilled to represent the Word Works in their hometown, Washington, D.C. I promised my co-reader I’d wear my coolest dress to compliment his coolest shirt. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Book Party Fun

Last weekend Joanne Ungar and Daniel Mandil hosted a fabulous book party for Immortal Medusa at Cornelia St. Cafe, one of my old haunts in the Village. Many thanks to them, and to everyone who joined us, especially all those who purchased books.

Earlier last week, I was a featured reader at Dan Wilcox’s Third Thursday Poetry Night at The Social Justice Center in Albany. I read from all four books, sharing some new and old favorites for the Albany poetry community. A big thanks to everyone in attendance, and a special thanks to those who read during the open mic portion.

Before leaving Minneapolis, I had a beautiful reading with five other poets from The Word Works press (Jamison Crabtree, John Bradley, Lisa Sewell, Keynes Cheshire, and Richard Carr).

I had another set of readings this past weekend with Michele Battiste. Rebecca Schumejda joined us Saturday at the Woodstock Public Library, then on Sunday Michele and I read again at the Schenectady Public Library.

I am thrilled to be receiving such positive responses from readers, and thrilled that Immortal Medusa has been selling so well. IM made SPD’s best seller list for March! You can view the list here.
