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.
