On Sunday, June 7th at 6 pm, I'll be at the Central Square Library sharing poems from my latest book, Reach Out in the Darkness: How Pop Music Saved My Mortal Soul. The book's theme focuses on how the music of the 1960s and '70s profoundly influenced my teen years. While the poems are understandably personal to my experience, audiences from previous presentations have noted how they were able to relate them to their own turbulent years. Part of the reason for this is because of the performances by Matthew Wood and Gina Holsopple, who will accompany me at the presentation with great cover versions of some of those '60s songs. Hearing Gina recreate Janis Joplin or Matthew evoke James Taylor always inspires my readings of the poems. I look forward to this event and hope you can join us.
The Central Square Library is located at 637 S. Main Street, Central Square. No need to register, but you can contact them for directions, etc. Also let me know if I can answer any questions for you by contacting me using the link form this website.
