more readings!

This month, I’m doing several readings to promote Front Man even more, and I’m especially excited about these events because of the other poets on the bill.

On Friday, January 21 at 7 p.m., I’m going to read with Dawn Leas, author of the chapbook I Know When to Keep Quiet, available from Finishing Line Press. The reading will be held at the Barnes & Noble in downtown Wilkes-Barre (7 S. Main Street). Dawn holds an M.F.A. from the Wilkes University Graduate Creative Writing Program, and her work has appeared in a variety of journals, including goldwakepress.org, Willows Wept Review, and Writers’ Bloc.

On Friday, January 28 at 7 p.m., I’m the featured reader at Anthology New and Used Books in Scranton (515 Center Street). I’ll read for about 20 minutes, and then a limited open mic will follow.

On Saturday, January 29 at 6:30 p.m., I’m heading up to Ithaca, NY to read with two wonderful poets. The poets I’m sharing the stage with are  Jaime Warburton, an associate professor of writing at Ithaca College and author of the chapbook Note That They Cannot Live Happily, and Charles G. James, who lives in Elmira, NY and does all of his work on a typewriter. How cool is that? The reading will be held at the Owl Cafe,  located on the second floor of the Autumn Leaves Bookstore in the Ithaca Commons.
