I was humbled by the size of the audience I had for my reading from Resting in the Familiar at Village Books April 29 at 4:00 PM, How wonderful to see so many familiar faces in the audiences, although I wish I would have had time to visit with so many. Thank you all for coming.
The visit to the Methow by Paul Nelson, Judy Kleinberg and Luther Allen on May 10 to give a workshop in Twisp on Glover Street at Rod Reagent’s studio and May 11 was a success. We had several people who were interested in trying something new. The next evening readings by them, our past Washington State Poet Laureate, Tod Marshall, along with Confluence Poets: Sam Owen, Subhaga Crystal Bacon, Alana Blusol and myself at Trail’s End Bookstore in Winthrop received a letter to the editor of the Methow Valley News with high praise for the poetry.
