HOSTING READING ON GOVERNOR'S ISLAND

I'm pretty psyched to be hosting a reading at the New York Poetry Festival on Governor's Island on Sunday July 27th at 4:00 pm on the ALGONQUIN stage.  The poetry fest goes from 11-6pm on Saturday the 26th-Sunday the 27th.  It looks like it'll be a beautiful day.  Here's the link to the festival's home page, and here's the link to the event page on Facebook.

Here's a picture of governor's island. Free ferries are available from lower manhattan.

My Dead's new playlist.

Octopus Books recently asked me to make a playlist for my book, My Dead, on Rdio (it's like Spotify. You need an account).  I was happy to comply as some music was playing during the writing of this book. Listen here.  Other songs were chosen after the fact due to my research concerns as a result of thinking about the book.   Please make a Rdio account and listen to the whole Octopus Books channel. There's a really chill playlist to go along w/ Emily Kendal Frey's SORROW ARROW.

The one track that was not available on Rdio was "I Was Here" by Beyonce.  So have a listen here.
