Reading on May 17th

I'll be reading on Tuesday, May 17th, as part of the Downtown Partnership's ongoing outdoor reading series "Poets in Preston." Ignoring its slightly inaccurate title (just as many writers have been invited to read so far as poets), I'll be reading with the awesome Sandy Asirvatham and Jeffrey Shipley. Oh, and there will be free smoothies (in addition to books and stuff for purchase).

I hope the weather holds up, and I hope to see you and share a smoothie!

What: Downtown Partnership's "Poets in Preston"
Where: Preston Gardens, Lower St. Paul & Pleasant St./Downtown Baltimore (near Mercy Hospital and the courthouse)
When: Tuesday, May 17 · 12:00pm - 1:00pm
