I had the pleasure and honor today of reading at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland. This was especially meaningful to me because it was at The Writer’s Center that I first began to study writing and share my work in workshops. That’s unquestionably what got me started down this road, so it’s great to go back there to read.
The other reader today was Hailey Leithauser, whose first collection of poetry, Swoop, is about to be released from Graywolf. I really enjoyed her reading and am looking forward to reading the book.
Thanks to everyone who came to the reading! (And thanks to Susanne Stahley for the photo.)
