Here's a reading I did at Malvern Books a couple of months back, along with the Great John Domini and the Greater Alysa Hayes. I read a few short sections from Professed that deal with--grading.
If you're in Austin this weekend, this is what you need to do--
Take the damp, drizzly November of your soul and dry it out and cheer it up with some words at Pine Street Station, the wonderful studio of Austin artist Reji Thomas. (That's Reji's painting Eyes to the right.) I'll be reading with my friends, novelist John Domini and poet Alysa Hayes.
John is the author of A Tomb on the Periphery and Earthquake I.D.
Alysa's poetry has appeared in the anthology Two Southwests and in Callaloo and other journals.
(Me you know about....)
This is going to be a lot of fun--we'll be in the middle of the East Austin Studio Tour, with all kinds of activities--painting, sculpture, jewelry, music, food, fire-dancers, earthquakes, meteors--all kinds!
