I have some cool events coming up:
Thursday, November 7th, at 7:30pm, I'll be reading with Richard Beban, Jim Natal and Susan Terris at Beyond Baroque Literary Center, 681 Venice Blvd. (two blocks south of Lincoln). We'll each be reading from our own environmentally themed poetry to promote the recent Pudding House anthology, FRESH WATER. Beyond Baroque is such an amazing, illustrious, literary hub; I'm so thrilled to be reading there (and with such fabulous poets!) The event (and the anthology) will benefit Pete Seeger's organization, The Hudson River Sloop Clearwater.
Saturday, November 9th, from 5:30 to 7:30, I'll be acting as emcee for the literary stage at Ladyfest Los Angeles. This event should rock. I am very excited (and more than a little nervous!) to be introducing such luminaries as Francesca Lia Block, Eloise Klein Healy, Terry Wolverton, Michele Serros, and other incredible women wordsmiths. This will take place at the Spring Tower Bank Building, 453 Spring Street, Downtown Los Angeles, CA 90013. Ladyfest Los Angeles will be a mind-blowing four day festival of women's art--film, spoken word, music, and visual art. Check it out at www.ladyfestlosangeles.org.
