    I have the great honor of reading with a Los Angeles icon, RD "Raindog' Armstrong! As he tells it, "I've  been at it most of my life, but got serious in the early 90s." Although he has been 'on the scene' since then, he has never found a niche. His latest collection of 'forgotten' poems has been getting rave reviews and will, perhaps, finally place him into the category of 'L.A. Poetry Elder.' We're gonna' read some poems, sign some books, and be pleased to meet you!

    Details are still coming in, but here's what I got! California Poetry Laureate Dana Gioia will host a special reading to celebrate the publication of the Best America Poetry anthology and the impressive number of So. Cal poets therein!

Poet and chief editor of BAP. David Lehman will be on hand, too!  STAY TUNED!

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