July 20: Bookworks in Albuquerque, NM

Looking forward to my next gig, I’m reading at Bookworks with my fellow Kundiman poet Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello ¬†and poet Ashley Jones! I heard Marci read from her new award-winning book Hour of the Ox at AWP, and it was moving. I’m looking forward to hearing her reading a more intimate space than the book fair hall, and meeting/hearing Ashley. I’ve also heard good things about indie bookstore Bookworks. It’s sad that Los Alamos does not have a bookstore anymore.

Please join us for a diverse, interesting poetry reading!


June 23: Mother Foucault’s Bookstore, Portland, OR

Heading to Portland, OR to read with my fellow Kundiman and programmer poet Neil Aitken whose third book Babbage’s Dream was released this year as well. It was so interesting to read this book because it activated both my software engineering mind and my poetry mind in such surprising ways.
