After a long wait, my first book of poetry, Broken Rooms, a haiku-and-photography collaboration with sculptor Will Corwin, comes out Saturday, November 8. If you happen to be in New York on that date, please come get a drink and celebrate both Will’s and my book and birthdays on publication day.

Saturday, November 8, 2014  7:00-10:30 pm
232 East 9th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues
The party will be held next door to the main entrance of Solas.

Haiku!  Images!  Live music!  Be there!
Beautiful hand-sewn books will be available for sale for $40, or you can find one online at Crumpled Press.
