It’s safe to say that Geoffrey and I have been admirers of each other’s poetry for a while, thanks to the blogosphere. But our true "connection" is through Rethabile. Amazing!
Then I had the great pleasure of reading again with Susan Rich. Joining us was Mark Statman and Kevin Pilkington. I was more excited about hearing everyone else’s work than reading my own (but don’t get me wrong—I enjoyed reading).
Here are poets Mark Statman and Mervyn Taylor.
Susan and me.
Kevin Pilkington, Mark Statman, Susan, and me.
The Miami Book Fair does not disappoint. I've never seen so many people come out for books in my life! Congrats to festival chair and founder Mitchell Kaplan, whom I met yesterday (not pictured), for pulling all of this together, and for supporting books, books, books!
