Poet in the World: Tonight at Village Books, Bellingham, WA

I am reading tonight at Village Books in Bellingham, WA Are you in driving distance to this lovely bookshop? If yes, then come see me try to pull off something totally new -- a poetry reading by powerpoint. I was asked by the book savvy Nan Macey to supply the art work of Myra Albert Wiggins to accompany the poems I have written about her photography, paintings and life ... The thing is, this is only my third powerpoint -- and my first poetry reading with visuals. Wish me luck -- or better yet -- come join us tonight @ 7:00 PM, 1200 Eleventh Street, Bellingham.


  1. Thanks, January! A small but engaged crowd. Strange to read poems with visuals behind me ...It felt a little more like a lecture...Need to think about what I would do differently next time. At my reading last Sunday, I gave out an image to each person in the audience so they got a sense of the work -- I think the visuals impedes the imagination a bit...hmmm. Need to think more about this.
