*You still have a couple more weeks to get the pre-order deal on ordering yourself a copy of SALVAGE--I promise all sorts of mermaidy and surreal goodness in these pages. If you need persuading, you can see some sample poems here, and here, and here. I will likely be hosting some sort of release party later in the summer, so stay tuned...
*I am currently working on getting up our BALLYHOO: BEASTS, BROADS, AND THE BIZARRE exhibit for Aesthetics, which features some of my GIRL SHOW poems (with pitch cards that will be in the vending machine!!), as well as a book art creation from Sina Evans, a "Peep Show" created by our student workers, and some of the Bookwrecking creations. Plus a hefty dose of our collection of carnival/sideshow books.
* I will be reading with two of my fellow BLP authors and very favorite poetry-people, Simone Muench and Daniela Olszewska, for the May incarnation of the Salon Series in the library on May 25th. I don't know for sure if I will have copies of the new book in tow just yet, but you can pick up a copy of GIRL SHOW if you don't have one (and I may even sign it for you.)
