Poetry Atlanta Presents...Katie Chaple, Chelsea Rathburn & Laurel Snyder
I hosted the quarterly Poetry Atlanta Presents... reading this afternoon at Wordsmiths Books in Decatur. There was an amazing crowd to see Katie, Chelsea and Laurel (top to bottom in the so-so pics from my crappy camera) read their work. Afterwards, Chelsea and her main squeeze, poet Jim May, hosted a reception. Somehow the conversation turned to AWP 2009 in Chicago. There's going to be a big Atlanta contingent, that's for sure. Thanks to everyone who came out this afternoon and to our fine poets. We're planning another reading for April 12 to mark National Poetry Month.
