New Hope

This Thursday, I’m venturing to one of my favorite towns in Pennsylvania, New Hope, a suburb of Philadelphia located in Bucks County. I enjoy New Hope for its charm, for its array of restaurants and shops near the river that snakes and cuts through the town. I’m going there to do a reading at Farley’s Bookshop, by far one of the best indie bookstores I’ve been to, especially in PA. The store has a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction, bookshelves that showcase releases from indie presses, and a decent poetry section.

The reading starts at 8, and a Q & A will follow. I wrote my set list on paper, and it will be a little different than other readings I’ve done this year. It will include a few poems from my chapbook Front Man, but it’s also going to include some poems from the book I have coming out next summer. I’ve been holding back on reading a lot of poems from the new book because I’ll do a lot of readings next year centered around the new publication. But I’ll give a small preview at Farley’s.

I’m looking forward to this, and if you’re in the area, please stop by. If you have extra time, browse New Hope’s shops before stopping over at Farley’s.
