Reading March 20, Sunday, at Diesel Books

I am happy to be reading at Diesel Books on March 20, Sunday, at 3 p.m. with Fred Marchant and Dan Bellm.

Fred Marchant and I have gotten to know one another at various literary conferences in the past couple years. He served during the Vietnam War and was one of the first marine officers ever to be honorably discharged as a conscientious objector. He is a genuinely sensitive individual, as seen in his poems. I am so honored to be reading with him and his friend Dan Bellm. Dan Bellm lives in San Francisco, and his third book of poems “takes as its starting point the Jewish practice of studying weekly portions of the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, in an annual cycle.”

As usual, I’ll do a kind of mixed genre presentation, mixing song with poetry and trying to surprise you! I’ll also read from my new manuscript of work that relates to the documentary I’m cowriting, Duas Americas.
