Because I’m just oh so conceited, I present to you some photos from the reading I gave at the UConn Co-Op on November 12th in support of the Covenant Soup Kitchen. All photos are courtesy of the Co-Op’s facebook page.
Fellow reader of the night, Kate Schapira
Kate Schapira read from a number of her collections of poetry, including The Soft Place, How We Saved the City, and a chapbook whose title eludes me. Really a remarkable poet!
Just me addressing a sea of hair
It really was nice to see such a packed audience come out for a night of poetry and community. It’s not too late to help out! Head on over to the Covenant Soup Kitchen’s website to see how you can do your part.

My poem, ‘Gastronomica,’ appears in the latest issue of The Write Life, An Ode to Words
One of the poems from my book, Chronicles of a Bee Whisperer, has recently been republished in the latest issue of The Write Life.
The poem, titled ‘Gastronomica,’ puts a new twist on a couple of common phrases that we use today — take a look at the issue, An Ode To Words, to read! The issues are free if you register your email address on the site; a link to view the pdf will be sent to your inbox with each issue. Or, you can download the free app on your iPhone/iPad and purchase copies for a small fee.
Next Tuesday (November 12th) at 6pm I will be reading from my book of poetry Chronicles of a Bee Whisperer at the UConn Co-Op on the Storrs Campus. Titled “Creative Sustenance,” the event is to benefit the Covenant Soup Kitchen in Willimantic, CT.
I’ll be reading alongside fellow poet Kate Schapira whose work includes The Soft Place and The Ground/The Pass/The Wave. Join us to support this amazing cause led by the Creative Writing Program at UConn; bring a canned good or donate a few dollars and I might even sign a copy of my book!
