Upcoming Readings Volume 1

Well, sluggishly I'm getting a reading schedule together for these forthcoming books, both out by the end of the first week in April, stated dates April 1.  Hence, I'm asking for your help.  I suck at these things, love doing collaborative readings/performances, etc. don't get me wrong, but setting them up feels far too self-promotional to me.  So far I've been asked by friends and future friends to read in various locales, and so by the hospitality of others, actually have something like a schedule.  Now, say friends, I should actually seek out reading venues, you know.  Get out of my house once in awhile.

So now that I've developed a skeletal schedule thanks to lovely and giving persons, I figured I'd a) ask all of you if you or anyone you know would like to host a poet who washes dishes, to read at your (or your friends') venue, and b) if yes or no, and if in one of these areas, join us at one or two of the below events.  If you are interested in hosting me, or know someone who is, I'm especially interested in figuring out (fleshing out) east coast, west coast, and midwest dates--basically to avoid paying for more than one trip per region.  Hell, I can't pay for more than 3 or 4 trips over the next year or two anyway.     

This list will grow a bit, dates will be made firm, etc., and so from time to time I'll put the updated schedule here on the blog. 

Thanks much so far to Amy King, Thom Donovan, Rachel Zolf, Rachel Levitsky, Andy Grecivich, Leonard Schwartz, David Buuck, & Rob Halpern for helping me with all this. For now:
