Upcoming Appearance: TWO this weekend–Book Barn & Colchester History Museum

Happy National Poetry Month!

I’m kicking off the celebrations in a big way–with a featured reading followed by leading an informal workshop!

Front Cover FINAL

Joanie DiMartino, Suzy Lamson, student voice Holly Richmond and Glenn Shea will read their work.  Refreshments to follow.  This reading will take place at Book Barn Store Four.  For directions click here.

Last summer I had the pleasure of reading along with Suzy and Glenn, and it was such a wonderful evening we decided to have an encore performance, inviting youth poet Holly Richmond to join us!  I’ll be reading selections from Strange Girls and my upcoming manuscript, “Wood to Skin.”
