Previous Events:

The Ohioana Book Festival on Saturday, April 8, 2017 was a huge success, as was the reading at The Book Loft the evening before. I met so many enthusiastic poets and poetry lovers, and was blessed to share the event with friends and family.

The Athens Author Fair at the Athens Public Library on Saturday, March 18, 2017 was well attended and lots of fun. I was delighted to have an opportunity to share my experience of writing and publishing on a panel with David Sanders and David Mould. The following Meet and Greet provided time for further conversation, book buying, and autographing. 

 

The Poetry of Place program at the Athens (Ohio) Public Library on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 was a great success. I read from my book, Getting the Mail, and many other readers shared poems of their own, or poems by others that they loved.

We celebrated Getting the Mail with a book launch party on August 26, 2016 at The Maple Lawn Brewery in Pomeroy, Ohio. What a great night! Here’s a look at some of the fun:
