Come on out to hear me read on Sunday, June 11th for the Schuylkill Valley Journal. The new issue of the journal contains a portfolio of my poems from Caligulan and my next book, Last One Out, as well as a long interview conducted by Mark Danowsky, a professional detective and fellow poet.
I am enormously grateful for the amount of space given over in the issue to my work and the interview. I look forward to meeting the rest of the staff and reading for the launch of the issue. Hope to see you there!
Here is the official announcement:
