I'll be reading with Briana Muñoz, Tom Laichas, and A. K. Toney.
What a pleasure it is to read with two marvelous poets: Tom Laichas and Brendan Constantine!
I'm so pleased to join this program of excellent poets at the famous Sims Poetry Library on March 25 at 2 PM. 2702 W. Florence Ave, LA CA, I'll read poems from my new manuscript-in-progress: The Undertakers. Yes, Earth Day Every Day!
I'll be reading in tandem with Phoebe McAdams from our books about Los Angeles. Her poems are drawn from her daily experiences and contemplations of living in Los Angeles, while my poems tell the origin stories of the region's dynamic landscape in which the land and the sea are the main characters. Poet Jimmy Vega will round out the reading with his insights into the riches and complications of our urban lives.
On April 1st, please help me celebrate the release of my new collection of poems, Three Hundred Streets of Venice California, just out from FutureCycle Press.
Irrepressible spring leans toward summer. Even here, at the coast, inland heat simmers just beyond the fog and ocean clouds. With April comes National Poetry Month and with that come the festivals!
I'm reading in the Sierra Poetry Festival's Poetic Crossings on North San Juan Ridge (just outside Nevada City), a site of artistic vitality when I lived in Nevada County in the late 70s and early 80s.
Puvungna is one of the most important sacred and cultural sites in Southern California. I'll be reading mainly from my award-winning book, Sacred Sites: The Secret History of Southern California, including ancient narratives about the history of this singular village site.
