Lots of stuff going on.

First, a reminder that the next Poetry Hickory is July 13 and will feature Maureen Sherbondy and Richard Krawiec.  Open Mic readers that night will be Tony Ricciardelli, Doug McHargue, and Stony Walker.

Second, don't forget that Writers' Night Out on July 13 will consist of a poetry workshop taught by Sherbondy and Krawiec.  Cost of the workshop is $10 per person.

Finally, if you haven't heard yet, we'll be holding a Book Release Party for "The Nature of Attraction," my new collaboration with Pris Campbell, at Taste Full Beans on August 5, from 5:30 to 7:00.  The event will include a live reading from me and a recorded reading from Pris.  Wine and snacks will be served.  A promotional flier is below.  Feel free to share it with anyone you think might be interested.
