HAIL COLUMBUS: Tania Rochelle and I road-tripped down to Columbus, GA for an afternoon and evening of poetry readings and signings at the Barnes & Noble. We met a lot of folks and sold some books (Tania did exceptionally well). We read three times during the day, culminating with an open mic event. As always, I must thank B&N's Patt Chamberlain for making us feel so welcome and promoting the hell out of events at the store to draw in an audience. This was my third trip down there and it always amazes me how many people turn out.
