Poetry and Prose on January 14, 2017

Saturday, January 14th, at 4:00 PM

I’m gonna be the prose filling in a poetry sandwich! Thanks to Brendan Constantine (who will serve as emcee and I expect will be LA’s poet laureate one of these days), I’ll be reading for the first time from a new novel-in-progress. Poet Elizabeth Iannaci – who is also an actor and singer and has been known to play the drums – is sure to offer a spirited reading. And my friend and comrade-in-arms, Natasha Sajé, will be in town from Utah with her restless and witty explorations of etymology, the alphabet, and the contested meanings of our lives. Brendan says the date marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Anaïs Nin. Does he have something in mind?

Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291

      and as I just replied to another friend (and I’m not sure whether people who’ve commented also see other people’s comments and replies), this is very much a stumbling work-in-progress but this reading was a good excuse to work on the opening pages. The other actually completed “new” novel rests on my hard drive as I seek agent/editor/angel.
