Buoyed by the virtual readings--and writers' pets!--popping up on my social media timelines. (Coney also approves.) Grateful to be participating in one of them: Imminent Readings, Sunday, March 29th, at 5:30 PM EST. Hear me and my fellow participants read poems from our recently released collections. I'll be reading from Adelante, Lonely Christopher from In a January Would (Roof Books), and Candice Wuehle from Death Industrial Complex (Action Books). None of us would be reading without Valerie Hsiung, creator of Imminent Readings, as well as author of the excellent and also recently released You & Me Forever (Action Books). Visit @ImminentSeries on Twitter to view each live stream this Sunday.
Today is ADELANTE's official pub date! Grateful & amazed this poetry book has made it into the world. 🍊🍊
If you'll be at AWP in San Antonio, copies will be available at Switchback Books' table (T1237). If, like me, you had to re-think your AWP plans, you can also check out ADELANTE online at the #AWPVirtualBookfair and Small Press Distribution. (SPD is having a sale for 35% off with code VIRTUALAWP!) I also have copies I'm happy to sign--email or fill out the contact form if interested. I'm sad I won't be celebrating ADELANTE's release at AWP this year, but I'm so thankful this book about my father, grief, legacy, Florida, & the environment is here. 🧡
