I had a great time reading with two excellent poets, Robert Cooperman and Andrea Hollander, first in Boulder (at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore) on April 4th and then in Denver (at BookBar) on April 5th. Just for grins, here some pictures. I’m only in one of them because I was the guy behind the camera for all the rest; the one I’m in was taken by Nicole Sullivan, presiding genius of BookBar.
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.
