Poetry reading in LA next Saturday 9/15

Next Saturday 9/15 I'll be a reader for HELLA Poetry in some excellent company with Ife-Chudeni A. Oputa, Steven Sanchez, sam sax, and Vanessa Villarreal, in conversation with organizers Sara Borjas and Joseph Rios. The venue is Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park and we'll be reading at 2pm with Q&A to follow. I'll have copies of my chapbook, Theory on Falling into a Reef, for sale ($10) and postcards to hand out with the cover art and title poem from my forthcoming book, Why Can't It Be Tenderness (out in two months!). LA folks, hope to see you there!
