The countdown has begun for my book launch in early June! I've been working with my press to arrange for some readings to celebrate. Here's where you can catch me & pick up a signed copy this spring:
- June 15 - Modern Art, Lancaster, PA (mostly a chill party with a themed beverage, make your own celebrity poem station, and craft table where you can design the perfect paper bag mask)
- June 17 - Ottobar, Baltimore, MD (reading with Steven Leyva & Meghan Phillips, hosted by Andrew Sargus Klein with activities by Container)
- June 21 - Tattooed Mom, Philadelphia, PA (reading with Jim Warner & Gina Myers, hosted by Jaime Fountaine)
I had the chance to work with the amazing Melissa Dias-Mandoly on some artwork for my book launch posters (sneak peek below!) so keep an eye out for those on social media and around town if you live in Lancaster, Baltimore, or Philly! I also commissioned my very first poem over the weekend, which you'll have to come to one of the readings to learn more about. Secrets...
Shout-out to Paperless Post, who helped me design customized digital book launch invitations that I've been sending out to my contacts!
You can pre-order I Am Not Famous Anymore: Poems after Shia LaBeouf now from Mason Jar Press (to be shipped in June) or add it to your Goodreads bookshelf if you're planning to pick up a copy in person at one of the readings. I'm working on some additional fall dates (Syracuse & Brockport, NY, as well as the Baltimore Book Festival), so stay tuned!
