Coming up on Saturday, May 25th, Scott Wiggerman has kindly invited me to be a featured reader at the NM State Poetry Society Poetry Picnic in Albuquerque. I will reading in the 2:30-3:15 pm slot along with Megan Baldrige and my long-time poetry pal Dale Harris. There will be many poetry-related fun activities happening all day. The location is: Open Space Visitor Center (OSVC), 6500 Coors Blvd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87120.
Then on Thursday, June 20 at 7:00 pm, I get to do a reading with the esteemed Leslie Ullman at SOMOS at 108-B Civic Plaza in Taos. The next day from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, I will be conducting my popular Pumping Up the Pantoum Workshop again at SOMOS.
On the weekend of July 13th and 14th, I get to be the poetry part of Don McIver’s Chatter Performances. This is a monthly combination poetry-music gig in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque. I will be teamed with Joseph Johnson, who will be playing Benjamin Britten and J. S. Bach on cello. Both performances commence at 10:30 AM. The Santa Fe performance is at 10:30 AM on July 13th at SITE Santa Fe, 1606 Paseo de Peralta. The Albuquerque show is at 10:30 AM on July 14th at Las Puertas, 1512 1st Street NW. Check out the Chatter website. Joseph Johnson’s web site explains that the cello he uses was made in 1780. That gives me pause.
All the above events are listed on the calendar on this website.
