Mark Smith-Soto and I were the featured readers at Flyeaf Books Second Thursday Reading Series. This is a nice intro to readers in North Carolina- they consistently feature 2 NC writers with new books. Keep up with the series here
It was great to read with Mark- I was a PhD student at UNCG while he taught there (he still does) but we hadn't met formally before. He's a great reader and I loved the work he read from his new book Splices.
They draw a nice crowd that is very attentive, very focused. It's lovely to see poetry be so vibrant in a community.
