Here are some pics of my first reading in support of Marked Men at Tattered Cover‘s Colfax location this past Friday, September 20th. Wrestling a 46-page historical poem into a 45-minute presentation gave me a sleepless night or two, but I lucked into a generous audience that made the evening a real pleasure. Thanks to my beautiful wife Melody for her turn behind the camera.
Marked Men Launch at The Tattered Cover Book Store
Another Marked Men reading is on the schedule for the Denver area: 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 4th, at the wonderful new indie store, Book Bar. This is part of a whole Poetry Weekend, by the way. The next day—Saturday, October 5th, at 7:00 p.m.—Leslie Ullman and Sheryl Luna will be reading from their new collections: Ullman from Progress on the Subject of Immensity (University of New Mexico Press) and Luna from Seven (3: A Taos Press). Denver has needed a store like Book Bar for a long time now—one that brings together poets, poetry readers, and wine. Thanks to owner Nicole Sullivan for making it happen!
