ANOTHER MUCH NEEDED LAUGH
Thanks to Tim for sending me the link to this Colbert bit. For the best laugh, watch it to the end.
To respond to a post, just hit "comments" at the end and feel free to wail. [But no cursing people out or telling lies about them.]
I'll be speaking, and reading from some of my books, at a Faith+Works "spiritual reflections and delicious refreshments" gathering, on the theme of how I had an unexpected spiritual awakening while working in Hollywood in the TV and movie business, Sunday, February 26th, 5-7PM, (in time for you to get home for The Oscars) at The Unitarian Universalist Church, 35 Cleveland Street, Orange NJ.
I'll be one of two featured poets—the other Julie Maloney, founder of Women Who Write—at the Montclair Monthly Poetry Series, Thursday, March 2nd, at 7PM in the auditorium of the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Ave., Montclair NJ.
I'll be one of the readers for Poetry in Motion on March 20th downstairs at The Gotham Comedy Club in NYC, there's a cover charge and minimum drink or food charge (food's good), but it's always a worthwhile event with lots of cool reader/performers, including John Fuglesang, Eddie Brill, Rachel Diken and Puma Peri.
I'll be reading my poetry and responding to interview questions from David Lehman and the audience at The New School Poetry Forum, April 25th, 6:30PM, Room 510, 66 West 12th Street, NYC, all welcome.
