Poetry Set-List for a River Side Reading in Sunbury


Susquehanna River


The clock is ticking. . . I really need to put together my “set-list.” From what mark said we only have 45 minutes or so to wow the crowd. If my math is right, with three of us, that equals almost 15 minutes each (please tell me you don’t take what I say literally), so I want to be very sure what I am reading and in what order. Last readings at Faustina’s Gallery and Priestly Chapel were more shoot from the hip. This, well, I’m going for calculated excellence. 😉

Hello WordPressers!

Excitement builds as we near the morning of poetry at the Sunbury Poetry Fest! I hope all that read this will join us.

Some interesting tidbits– Aug. 14th, at the crack of dawn Dave Bauman, myself and Marjorie Maddox wll join hosts Mark Lawrence and Mark Giesen for a wonderful interview on WKOK at 845am in the morning. We are looking forward to the opportunity to share poetry and our love of the arts.  Still waiting on news of the Tom Morgan show. Hoping that pans out. 

Have a great day everyone!

    1. Aw, thank you, Vince. I wish you could be too. We are going to try to catch it on film on multiple cameras, so we’ll see how it turns out. The hard part (other than the early morning radio interview tomorrow!) is figuring out the set list.


    1. Thank you, it’s off to radio interview number two this morning. We just got another one for Thursday. Eek. All this press, we should at least have an audience, I hope!


  1. I’m cheering for you, Dave! Your show will be “excellence,” whether calculated or random.

    I *would* wish you to “break a leg,” but after my recent reading experience (the one in which I fell *onto* the stage), I’m no longer saying that to people. In any case, I wish I could be there. I know it’s going to be wonderful!
