Poetry Atlanta

Nights like this, I feel lucky to do what I do. Reading in Atlanta was extremely gratifying. Atlanta was a second home for me growing up, so coming down to read my poems is such a thrill. Even my aunt Mary came to hear me read (Mom, she won’t let me post her photo!).



Really enjoyed reading with James May.

Host Collin Kelley


Michelle Stevens and me






Truth be told, I was equally as excited about meeting Collin Kelley as I was about the reading. What a pleasure to finally meet him! I’ve got to figure out a way to have him read in the Boston area; although, his dance card is pretty full these days.


Special thanks to Poetry Atlanta, Georgia Center for the Book, and especially Collin for setting up this terrific event.
