Thanks to all who came out for the Michael Aaron Casares/Bill Shute poetry reading at The Hideout in Austin on Monday 10 January 2011…Michael did a number of selections from his excellent new book THIS REALITY OF MAN, and I did five pieces: “Brass,” the opening piece from SUSPENSION; DOWN BRIDGE STREET; THE COMPANIONSHIP OF THE PLUM (which was co-written with Ronald Baatz); SEPARATED FROM THE SPARROWS (which will be out in a few months); and “Copper,” the closing piece from SUSPENSION.
Michael and I read at the Hideout in January of 2010 also, so this was a return engagement. I hope Thom, the organizer of this series, liked us enough to invite us back next January!
I have two readings scheduled in Western Massachusetts in late May and a few offers for readings here in Texas in the Spring and Summer. Check back here or on Facebook for further details. As always, thanks for your support both of my work and of KSE’s poetry and music offerings!
