I have some exciting news: I’ll be doing a reading from my chapbook, Secret Rivers, on Wednesday, July 30, at 6:30 p.m., at Hyde Park Art Center here in Chicago. The venue is … well, just, wow. There’s currently an installation piece by John Preus called The Beast at HPAC, and the reading will be IN the installation, which is indeed beast-shaped. It must be seen to be believed.
If you live in the Chicago area, I hope you’ll come see my first poetry reading since college — and even then, it was always just a few poems, not me hogging the whole thing. So this is a pretty big deal!

This sounds wonderful, Marilyn! I wish I could be there for your launch reading!
I have to tell you: my copy of Secret Rivers arrived in the mail while I was away for two weeks, and last night, after we got home, I read it cover to cover in one sitting, with tremendous delight. It is a very special collection of poems.
Awww … Thank you so much! I’m glad you got it and enjoyed it. I’m on a road trip right now, but once I’m back, I have to study up on how to actually give a reading. 🙂
