A quick REMINDER about many WONDERFUL events happening around town, the next two weeks:
First, Friday night(Sept. 14th)Kodac Harrison is releasing his new CD!!
The man is extremely intuitive and has a wicked sense of humor...He also writes many soul-stirring pieces, as anyone who's ever heard him can attest! His "We Fly" brings me to tears any time I hear it(It also manages to be uplifting---I actually plan to have it played at my funeral)
So....Friday night, 9:00 P.M., Eddie's Attic, Decatur--- be there--- or be square!
Also coming up:
Along with many other poets and actors, I'll be performing at:
Beth Gylys' "Matchbook" release, at Troy Moore Library, at GSU, on Friday, Sept. 21st, at 7:30 P.M.(arrive at least thirty minutes early, to get a good seat!)
Her new book features a collection of her poems-as-personal ads...
I'll be reading "Bad Girl", a very racy, naughty poem!I'm flattered Ms. Gylys asked me to participate!
The very next evening, the annual "Voices Carry" will take place, this year, in a NEW location.See details, below!
