I am delighted to be participating in this year’s Write Women Book Fest on October 9, 2021, noon-5pm edt. This will be a hybrid event taking place online and at the Marietta House Museum in Glenn Dale, MD. The schedule is still getting worked out but I’ll post more information when it is available. This wonderful event was founded by Heather Brooks to, “lift up women authors and publishing professionals”, and is a cooperative endeavor with the Prince Georges County Parks Department.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to read at Cafe Muse’s Poets vs The Pandemic series last night, along with Ann Bracken and Miles David Moore. Great thanks to Henry Crawford and Karren Alenier for hosting this wonderful series. I read from Inheritance Of Aging Self as well as a newer poem about quilting. Have a listen below. My reading starts at the 40 minute mark.
I will be reading along with Miles David Moore and Ann Bracken at the July 21rst Poets vs The Pandemic reading sponsored by Cafe Muse. The reading begins at 7 pm and will last for an hour. I’ll be sharing several poems from Inheritance Of Aging Self as well as a pandemic poem or 2 and some new work.
The readers were chosen based on all of us being poetry reading organizers, Ann is one of the organizers of the Wilde Readings in Columbia, MD and Miles was the force behind the long-running Iota readings in Arlington, VA, and I founded the DiVerse Gaithersburg (MD) reading. As I’m sure they will both agree, it is always fun to be the reader and not the organizer every now and again. Many thanks to Henry Crawford for all the work he has done to organize this series. Read more about MIles and Ann here.
The reading will be on zoom and you can register here for the link. It will also be available later on You Tube because as Henry pointed out in an email, one of the purposes of the series is to “document DC area poetry during the pandemic.” As a huge fan of documenting things, I’m so glad that they are doing this because our poetic voices during the pandemic are an important part of helping us to make sense of what we’ve all been through.
Come join us for a wonderful evening of poetry!
