Mid-Week Notes & Notions

I'm reading tonight at a memorial service at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center for poet Dr. John Stone. That means an abbreviated American Idol recap, or maybe none at all. I could record it, but I don't have a VCR or DVR (I know, I know...). Let me direct you to the sidebar of this blog where you will find links to a number of sites that will do great recaps of tonight's auditions in Kansas City. Regular recapping will return next week as auditions continue. 

This Saturday is the first Poetry Atlanta Presents... reading of 2009 and it's going to be a corker: Stacey Lynn Brown, Chad Prevost and Karen Head. I'm your dapper host for the reading, which begins at 2 p.m. at Wordsmiths Books in Decatur. The poets will have books for sale, including Karen, who finally got copies of her wonderful chapbook, My Paris Year. Stacey will be signing her book, Cradle Song, which has literally just been published by C&R Press. Don't miss this reading, or you'll be kicking yourself on Sunday.

Check back at Modern Confessional on Friday morning for a big announcement. Really big. Huge. Gigantic, even. A new adventure is about to begin.

are you announcing what I think you're announcing? is this why you telephoned me the other night while I was on a [failed] date?

You are such a tease. What happens if we can't wait! :)

I already bought my copy of Cradle Song, and Iam waiting for it to show up in the mail.

I'm packing my bags now, CK! Can't wait to get down to the balmy 30-degree weather you got there. And celebrate your news, whatever it may be...

(And thanks, Justin! I hope you like it.)

Perfect, 2:00 in the afternoon, way before my bedtime. I'll be there!
CK-- I really wanted to come to the reading; however, I think people will appreciate me not sharing my germs. I'm sure it'll be a smash.
