Readings, Interviews, and Reviews

Saturday night's reading at Normals was cozy and fun. It was nice to see Barry Graham again and meet Scott Oliver. I would highly suggest purchasing Barry's collection, The National Virginity Pledge, which I am wildly enjoying.

Lalita Noronha interviewed me for the Maryland Writers Association publication Pen in Hand. We talk about City Sages, the 510 Readings, and some of my projects here.

I also review Tim Wendel's High Heat today on jmwwblog. More later!
