Poetry @ Pilot Event: Reading & Talk With Reg Johanson March 21

I'll be giving a talk & reading from 2 new books--Occultations (Black Radish Books, forth. April 2010) and Prefab Eulogies (BlazeVox, 2010)--at Pilot Bookstore as part of the Poetry At Pilot in March series.  It'll be great to work alongside Reg Johanson, who I haven't seen since our 2008 PRESS Conference, and whose work I deeply admire.  As umbrella series and venue, Pilot is teaming up with the curators of Big Pelt Talkie, which will be hosting Reg and I.  Thanks much to everyone at Pilot and to the curators of Big Pelt.  See you there.
