Next Thursday night at 7 p.m., come see me read at Get Lost! Bookshop, located at 8 South 9th St. in Columbia, MO. The reading is part of the bookstore’s Cold Reading Series, and I’m sharing the bill with the gracious and talented poet Stephanie Kartalopoulos, as well as Chris Stephens, who is going to play the sitar.
The sitar, people! THE ONLY SITAR IN ALL THE WORLD. How awesome is that?
Apparently there will also be wine and beer.
And it’s free, but you can shop for great books, both used and new.
I think I’ll be trotting out (ahem) some new work. I’m assuming that if you’re reading this, you already know about me, so here’s Stephanie’s bio to pique your poetic interest:
