A River Town Homecoming, Reading at the Ross Library

Ross Library Benches in Snow
That’s what it looks like now,  but don’t worry. I think the reading will be inside.

I’ve been updating my Events page with more and more upcoming poetry readings and what not. One of the most exciting is rather poetic. Next Saturday, January 27th, I’ll be reading in my old hometown. Just weeks after starting a new job as a library director, I’ll have the honor of going back to my very first library, the one I used to hide in when I was a kid, the one where I taught myself how to use the old card catalog. And there I’ll be giving my first public reading from Moons, Roads, and Rivers, my debut poetry chapbook from Finishing Line Press. I’m so excited!

It’s miles away for most of you, thousands of miles for some, but if you can be in central Pennsylvania next weekend, I’d love to meet up with you at the Ross Library, 232 West Main Street in the riverside town of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania at 2:00 pm. Just between you and me, I confess to feeling tremendously tickled to see my name in the old county libraries’ upcoming events list. I’ll have books with me for sale, of course. Or if you’ve already pre-ordered one, just bring it along and I’ll gratefully sign it!

  1. Finishing Line Press did a fine job printing the book. In this electronic age, it’s a pleasure to know there are people who still care about well-made books.

    1. Thank you, Brian. I’m glad you like it. It was a long time in coming, but yes, I’m very happy with how they put it together.
