I should say that I read from two recent books. In Boulder from Marked Men, and in Denver from Bed of Coals. In both venues Bob read from his brand new collection Just Drive (not yet linkable for purchase), and Andrea read from her latest, Landscape with Female Figure: New and Selected Poems, 1982-2012.
Innisfree Poetry Bookstore—Friday, April 4th
Thanks to Brian Buckley, who has made Innisfree the kind of home for poetry of which Yeats would certainly approve.
|Bob Cooperman reading from his brand new|
collection of poems about driving a taxi
in New York City, Just Drive
(so new it’s not even on the publisher’s Web site yet!)
|Andrea Hollander reading from Landscape with FemaleFigure: New and Selected Poems, 1982-2012,|
a powerful 30-year retrospective.
BookBar—Saturday, April 5th
Thanks, as ever, to Nicole Sullivan for creating her store’s relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
|Me on the left, wondering where my muse has|
wandered off to, and Bob Cooperman (right) holding a
hot-off-the-press copy of Just Drive.
|The two above are of Bob guiding us all through|
the gritty world of New York cabbies.
|The two above show Andrea reading with her customary|
poise and understated forcefulness.
