Massachusetts Poetry Festival

It's online--see information below.

The festival is online this year--see website for information. Because of my Sports Page book, I'm participating and facilitating a panel with two other terrific poets who write about sports: Marjorie Maddox and J.D. Scrimgeour.

Kansas solo show: Portrait of an Artist as Santa Claus

Ad Astra Books and Coffee House, 141 N. Santa Fe, Salina KS

This will be sponsored by the wonderful Salina Arts & Humanities Council, and I'll be doing one of my Portrait of an Artist as Santa Claus shows, so after every poem or fiddle tune, I'll be going into the audience and giving away a book or CD where the piece can be found. Everybody will be leaving with something. You'll see! It'll be fun (as we slowly return to whatever will be the new "normal").
