Poet Laureate

Read at Poets in the Park a few weekends back and reunited with one of my oldest friends, my classmate Christopher Luna from the Jack Kerouac School. We studied together at Naropa nearly 20 years ago and worked together for the fundraising department catering fancy parties. Many of the early poems in my book Equivalence were about those strange times in Boulder. Chris looks pretty much the same as I remember him, with some grey in his beard these days. Chris is now Poet Laureate of Clark County (Vancouver, WA).


Last night at the Rose Theater with Jessika Kenney and Lori Goldston performing Bill Porter’s Remembering Them Gone.


Reading at Hugo House on 10/11

Hugo House, 7 pm

Presented in partnership with Emily Johnson/Catalyst, On the Boards and Hugo House

Local writers, their perspectives, stories, and poems have a prominent place within SHORE in this curated reading featuring original work relating to home, place, and land.

Infinite associations, connections, and disconnections people have with, to, and from these sites are conjured in the moment of the reading and create a shifting, localized context for our stories, memories, and own definitions of home. Curated by Emily Johnson.
