Poetry Atlanta Presents...
Stacey Lynn Brown, Chad Prevost and Karen Head (pictured above l-r) read yesterday as part of the Poetry Atlanta Presents... reading series at Wordsmiths Books in Decatur. There was a standing room only crowd and the authors sold lots of books. One of the biggest and best readings we've had in the last two years of the series. There were lots of familiar faces in the audience, too, including Travis Denton, Katie Chaple, Christine Swint, Bob Wood (whose chapbook just got picked up by Finishing Line Press!) and Paul Guest, who will be featuring in the series in March. After the reading, we all went over to Brick Store Pub and when we came out, it was snowing.
Thanks again to everyone who has commented below, on Facebook, MySpace and sent emails about Conquering Venus. I really am over the moon about the novel. I'm spending the rest of the weekend working on the sequel.
RIP: Andrew Wyeth. He will remain one of my favorite artists. A retrospective of his work at the High Museum here in Atlanta a few years ago was an awe-inspiring exhibition. I went to a private media viewing and I remember standing in the middle of the main gallery and feeling full of emotion at all those haunting landscapes and figures. He was a genius.
