It’s been a whirlwind last few days, after a reading in Reading, PA on Thursday, the book launch for Waiting for the Dead to Speak Friday, and a second book launch in Boston on Sunday. This book has put me back in touch with a lot of old friends, and venturing to different cities has allowed me to step into other literary scenes and communities to see and support what they’re doing. It reaffirmed for me that poetry is alive and well, due to the time and energy people are willing to invest in it and in their community spaces. I’ve been thrilled to celebrate poetry with a wide range of friends. Over the last 72 hours, the news cycle has been depressing and disgusting, to the point where I almost didn’t tune into the second presidential debate, even as a politico. But the poetry readings/events have been such a positive contrast. I am so grateful for these types of communities that exist and to everyone who came out to these readings over the last few days.
I also want to note that I will be reading at the KGB Bar in NYC this Wednesday at 7 p.m.
In addition, I want to share some links to various interviews I’ve done over the last few weeks. I meant to share these earlier but had little time between teaching, writing, and readings for the book.
