This fall, I’m honored to be reading my poems at two northern Michigan events that recognize and support the essential work of the nonprofit organization, FLOW (For Love of Water). On Friday, September 14, 5:30-7 PM, I’ll read in Traverse City, Michigan, along with other Great Lakes-loving poets. Each one of us will debut a poem that arose from our passion for water. This event will be free and open to the public. Location to be announced. On Saturday, September 22, I’ll read in Harbor Springs, Michigan, as part of a house collage concert which will include music, movement, and my poems. Please contact me for more information. Then, next year, on April 11, at 7 PM, I’ll read at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as part of their Contemporary Writers Series. Many thanks to Anne-Marie Oomen, Sylvia Jania, and Shelli Rottschafer, respectively, for the invitations.
