First off, I’d like to send a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all who came out for my book launch and reading on Monday night. The subject matter of Split the Crow is solemn, sad, at times disturbing, but important to bear witness to and acknowledge. Thank you all for your willingness to share the stories with me. It was so nice to meet some of you, I wish we’d had longer to chat.
I have been asked to fill in for another poet in the Collected Poets Series which takes place this Thursday, April 2, 7 p.m. at Mocha Maya’s in Shelburne Falls. The poet Laura Foley will also be reading, 20 minutes each. I’ll read a handful of poems from Split the Crow and some girl/women-centric poems, completely different in tone, from a new manuscript I’ve just finished. The Collected Poets Series is super fun and intimate, coffee-house-style poetry reading with the coffee! Yay! And Thursday’s weather looks to be sunny and “warm”.
