“Even Now,” my latest book (a collaboration with artist Jill Sabella) is a finalist for the Colorado Author’s League Book Awards in poetry. Yippee! If you live near Denver, I hope you can join me on Saturday, April 29, 2 p.m. for the reading of poetry and non-fiction finalists (though I am the only one finalist who will make it for a poetry collection). I will have my dear friend Kyra Kopestonski with me to accompany on cello–a very special treat. I’m excited about this honor and hope you can come hear me and the other finalists! It’s Independent Bookstore Day–come celebrate! Winners of the awards will be announced the next week.
