Sibling Rivalry reading and LA gigs
A nasty bout of food poisoning scuppered much of my recent trip to Portland for AWP and No Fair/Fair. I missed the first two days – including the big Sibling Rivalry Press offsite reading I was supposed to host. Luckily, I recovered enough to do my signing at AWP and my reading at No Fair. Many thanks to Karen Head, JC Reilly and Dan Veach for having me at the Atlanta Review table and for the No Fair organizers for such a great gathering of small presses. Also, many thanks to my friend Ken for putting me up in Portland and tending to me while I being sick all over his house.
So, what's next?
On Monday, April 8, Poetry Atlanta and Georgia Center for the Book will present a special National Poetry Month reading featuring poets from Sibling Rivalry Press.
