I don’t quite know where to begin with offering my sincere thanks to everyone who helped make my second trip to Florida such a joy. I traveled from Miami to Saint Augustine (with Orlando and Ocala in between) and met so many lovely people. Here’s just a small glimpse at my travels, which were so memorable. Much gratitude to the Florida Literary Arts Coalition, to the Miami Book Fair and Miami Dade College, to Valencia College and the College of Central Florida, and to Flagler College, the last stop on my journey. I am especially thankful to all of the students who listened to my poems and asked me about them. What an absolute joy.
It was such a pleasure reading at Literati Bookstore with Matthew Thorburn and celebrating the release of The Grace of Distance and Partial Genius. What made the event even better was the presence of numerous friends who attended, and the hospitality of Literati, which was truly remarkable–what a gorgeous space.
Up next on the reading tour: the second half of my Florida Literary Arts Coalition circuit, with stops at Miami Dade College, Valencia College, College of Central Florida, and Flagler College. I’m looking forward to speaking about poetry and creativity, and soaking up some much needed sunshine. Later in the month, I’ll be reading at Baldwin Wallace University back here in Ohio. Much to look forward to!
