Lovely reading at Woman Made Gallery today, contributors to Solace in So Many Words, edited by Ellen Wade Beals. Taped by Kurt Eric Heintz for Chicago Amplified, WBEZ, so you can eventually hear/stream it. My little group of Normal poets so enjoyed the poems and stories they heard and the art all around. I read an excerpt from my essay "The Solace of Reading..." and here is a book tree from Half Price Blog. And to all...a good night!
"You must change your life," said Rilke. So that's what I keep doing. I've been an encyclopedia editor, a poetry editor, an actor and director, a library clerk, and an assistant professor of English. Now I'm a freelancer, work part time in a library, blog "eight days a week," study the random, tend perennials, and listen to birdsong.
