Salmon’s Off-Site Reading at AWP 2011

I will be taking part in Salmon Poetry’s off-site AWP reading in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the 30th anniversary of this great press. It takes place on Friday, Feb. 4th, at 8pm, at Pigment Art Studio, 1848 Columbia Rd. NW, Washington, D.C.

This is a blockbuster reading, also including the launch of 10 new poetry collections by Andrea Cohen, Christoher Locke, Allan Peterson, Philip Fried, Drew Blanchard, Drucilla Wall, Simmons Buntin, John Fitzgerald, Alan Jude Moore, and Patrick Chapman.

As well as the above, readers include Kevin Higgins, Susan Millar DuMars, Stephen Powers, Patrick Hicks, Eamonn Wall, Helene Cardona, Devon McNamara, William Pitt Root, J.D. Smith, Pam Uschuk, Adam Tavel, Irene McKinney, Jeanne Wagner, and, as I mentioned, myself.

The event is supported by Culture Ireland. Hope to see you there....

Oh, and Salmon will also have a table at the AWP Bookfair. Its location is Table E26, Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, Exhibition Level. My book Ancestor Worship will be on sale, as well as Salmon’s other books, so please stop by. The Bookfair runs every day during the conference.
