Poetry Reading at the Pen + Brush in Manhattan

On March 1st, I did a last-minute poetry reading for the Pen + Brush in Manhattan as a part of their "Pen + Brush Presents ..." monthly reading series. This reading series features three different writers, each representing a different press, editor, or literary entity. I was very flattered to represent Pen + Brush Books, the organization's literary branch, which, through curator/editor Kate Angus and literary manager Lisbeth Redfield, published some of my poems in October 2015.

I encourage anyone who can to attend the Pen + Brush's literary events. The work is stellar, and the programming dynamic and ever-evolving. I read a mix of some recent and older poems in the cozy ground-level space, while surrounded by the artwork of Michela Martello, who has a superb, poignant, and joyous solo show currently up in the gallery. It was an ideal and erudite late winter evening.

From "Resurrection," a drypoint etching I hand-printed that illustrates a line from one of the poems I read on March 1st. More can be viewed in the Printmaking page.
