Decatur Book Festival time again

The Decatur Book Festival is officially underway and 80,000 people are expected to attend this weekend-long literary orgy.

Tomorrow, I have the pleasure of introducing Jericho Brown at his reading at Eddie's Attic at 3 p.m. On Sunday, I read from Slow To Burn with the fab Michael Montlack, who will be reading from his new collection, Cool Limbo, at 1:15 p.m. also at Eddie's Attic.

On Sunday, I'm hosting two hours of poets from 4-6 p.m. on the Local Poetry Stage at Java Monkey Coffee House. At 8 p.m., we'll have the official release for Java Monkey Speaks: A Poetry Anthology Vol. 4, which I edited with Kodac Harrison. The featured reading will be by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey, who has a new poem in the anthology.
