Bits & Bobs

I'll be reading from Slow To Burn on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 3 p.m. at Bound to Be Read Books in East Atlanta Village. If you're in the area, come by and say hello. If not, you can order a copy of the chapbook from Seven Kitchens Press at this link.

I'll be reading with poet Michael Montlack at Eddie's Attic at 1:15 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 4 as part of the Decatur Book Festival.

Anis Shivani eviscerates new U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine, Sharon Olds, Jorie Graham and Louise Gl├╝ck in his latest column for The Huffington Post. Here's a quote: "Their poetry is garish, troublingly content-free, indecorous, and emotionless. Readers are smart not to read this trash." You can read the whole column at this link.

I should be sitting at Chastain Park Amphitheater right now with BFF Donna awaiting the fabulous Stevie Nicks. Unfortunately, Stevie got sick and postponed her concert until Wednesday. Donna was flying down from Virginia today just to see the show with me. The cost to switch the plane tickets was a fortune, plus we both have work, so maybe another tour. Hope Stevie feels better soon.
