I am pleased to be teamed with Leslie Ullman for a reading at SOMOS in Taos on June 20th at 7 PM. I’ve been a fan of Leslie’s poetry for many years; we’ve read together once before, also in Taos, ten or so years ago. She will be reading from her new book, The You That All Along Has Housed You: A Sequence. I intend to read mostly from Previous Lives. SOMOS is located at 108-B Civic Plaza in Taos.
The next day, June 21st, I will be conducting a workshop, “Pumping Up the Pantoum,” also at SOMOS from 10 AM to 1 PM. I’ve done versions of this workshop before, and it’s fun for me and the students, who learn how to write this form that can engender quite emotionally compelling poems.
