So it’s almost here … the moment I have waited for … reading at Woodland Pattern Book Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In a world full of impersonal cyber-shopping and the imminent death of so many independent bookstores, Woodland Pattern is truly a burst of light.
Each year, WPBC hosts a Poetry Marathon and Benefit and I am pleased to say I am a part of the line up of poets this year. I will be reading between 3:00 and 4:00 on Saturday and still need some pledges! Please see WPBC’s website, http://www.woodlandpattern.org/
&/ or my website: http://www.carriemcgath.com
for more information about the marathon and giving a pledge to myself or other poets. The schedule of poets is also available on WPBC’s website.
If you are in or in travelable distance to Milwaukee, please attend this significant poetry event. And bring some money to buy some great poetry from small presses and many chapbooks.
I am glad to be sharing this day with Don, with drinks from Von Trier following the reading.
And 2 nights at The Ambassador … what more could a poet want?
I am as excited as an anklet on Barbara Stanwick’s ankle …
