This limited edition, letter pressed broadside was printed for a tribute reading for Colorado author Michael Adams who passed away in September, 2013. The reading took place at Denver’s Glovinsky Gallery of Contemporary Art in November, 2013, & I was honored to be one of three featured readers commemorating Michael’s life. One hundred of these broadsides were printed by long-time Denver publisher Tom Parsons on a 1917 letter press machine. The poem itself was pressure fitted in an aluminum frame, letter by letter & is in reference to Michael’s phenomenal poetry collection, Steel Valley (Lummox 2010). The broadside also features original artwork from Steel Valley & was beautifully designed by author & artist RL Raymond. Each broadside is available for $2.00 including shipping, & currently only 50 remain of the one & only first run printing!
I am excited to announce that I will be a featured reader at the Glovinsky Gallery of Contemporary Art on Saturday, April 19th at 7 p.m for their event, The Written Word As Art! The reading is part of the Glovinsky Gallery’s month-long celebration of National Poetry Month and I will be joined by Fort Collins Poet Laureate Jason Hardung, as well as New Mexico author John Macker. The Glovinsky Gallery is a phenomenal venue for live poetry and serves up the ideal environment for creation and expression. For those of you in the Denver area, please mark your calendars and join us for a night of poetry, storytelling, and camaraderie!
On Sunday, February 16th I will have the distinct pleasure of being one of two featured authors for the HearthFire Books Poetry Reading Series! I will be joined by fellow Coloradan Maria Berardi, author of Cassandra Gifts, which is available now from Turkey Buzzard Press. The event begins at 5pm, but be sure to arrive early to browse the bookstore shelves & snag a front row seat!
