    6:00 pmThe Bowery Poetry Club - 308 Bowery, NY, NY (Between Houston & Bleeker)

    I’m excited to be participating in this long-running New York City-based poetry series nicknamed Where the Pulitzer Prize meets the Poetry Slam. Every month two different poets take the stage and read back and forth, poem for poem, in what they call “the ongoing conversation about where poetry lives!” For this edition I get to read with the wondrous Jennifer Michael Hecht! Thank you Taylor Mali for believing in me! For more information, visit PageMeetsStage.com or call 646-543-5232.

    2018 will be off to a great start with this (long awaited) event with Maxine Chernoff and Elena Karina Byrne! Both have dazzling new collections and they'll be signing afterward. I'll just have my same old books, but I'll sign'em, too! Mistress of ceremonies that night will be my dear friend and muse, poet Elizabeth Iannaci. This is gonna' be good!

I’m still learning how to update this page. Stay tuned!
