I'm headed to New York NY on June 9 for two events to promote the book-- June 10th with the Southern Writers Reading Series at the Happy Ending Lounge and June 13th at KGB Bar. Thanks to those who have kindly helped bring some southern poetry to the Big Apple. For more information, see links in APPEARANCES.
I want to take this opportunity to thank friends who have welcomed me to the Decatur Public Library, the Alabama Booksmith in Homewood, Capitol Book and News in Montgomery, and the Gnu's Room in Auburn. Also, I want to thank the Spalding University faculty, students, and alums who cheered and supported me during the recent brief residency in Louisville. As I look forward to visits ahead, I carry with me the love and warmth I've felt among friends in the past few weeks. Through you, the work gains meaning.
