August 6, 2019 I’m honored to be reading again at the Pratt Library, 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD. This reading features winners of the Pratt Library / Little Patuxent Review Poetry Prize from the last several years. My poem, “If Mamie Till Was the Mother of God” won the prize in 2012. I’m thrilled at coming back to the Pratt.



June 4, 2020 I’m thrilled to return to Berks Bards, a terrific reading series in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The reading takes place at The Goggleworks, 201 Washington Street, Reading, PA at 6pm. This series was run for many years by Liz Stanley. It was where I did my first reading with my first book, Meeting Bone Man. I’m thrilled to go back!

November / December 2020 My fourth book of poems, Raising King comes out in the late Fall of 2020. The launch readings are still in the works. They will be posted here as they are set.

December 4, 2020 Thanks to Doritt Carroll who coordinates the poetry readings at Zed’s Cafe, 8225 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. I’m thrilled to return to Zed’s with Raising King. The reading begins at 6pm. Zed’s has some delicious apple pie! Join us!
