I am really looking forward to this reading on Sunday, May 1. It's an at-home, old-fashioned kind of poetry salon hosted by a friend. She's hosted some before, and they are always so nice. My friend lives in a woodsy area with a babbling brook running behind her house. Yes, it really does babble. Lots of big windows, so it looks and feels like what's inside is part of what's outside. Then there's always a nice table of delicious treats. And, of course, poetry. Madeline Tiger and I will each read for about 20 minutes, followed by poetry conversation. We hope to see lots of friendly faces there!
