I am honored to be reading this month with fellow midwestern poets Esther Cowie, Virginia Konchan, Johanny Vázquez Paz, Patricia Clark, and Ricki Cummings. We’ll be at Woman Made Gallery, Sunday, January 26, 2-4 pm. The gallery is located at 2150 S Canalport Ave, #4A-3. Free parking is available in the lot behind the building and you enter from the parking lot side, then go up to the fourth floor. Leave a little time to find the gallery if you haven’t been there before—but don’t let the winding way keep you from coming!
