CRUX RELEASE EVENT: A signing and release party will be held for the anthology CRUX: A Conversation in Words and Images - South Africa to South USA on Friday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. at the Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta. The anthology is a collaboration between the Fulton County Arts Council and the Caversham Project in South Africa. I'm honored that two of my poems from the Body Maps series (pictured) about women living with HIV/AIDS in SA are included in this anthology. The book will feature poetry, art, essays and short fiction from Alice Lovelace, Jessica Care Moore, Jim Alexander, Felton Eaddy and many more. I'm not sure what the distribution or how widely available the anthology will be at this point, but I'll post more info soon.

Is a condom really a dollar? Obviously it's been years since I've had sex with boys...I think they were a dime way back when...
