My first solo East Bay reading for Storm Camp is coming up Thursday, May 18, 5:30 to 7:00, at University Press Books, the great little store at 2430 Bancroft, opposite Zellerbach Hall. Note the early time. I’ll read some climbing poems, of course; some environmental poems; and a couple of the ones that have earned me the somewhat-puzzling-to-me reputation as a religious poet. For friends who stopped by at Berkeley Ironworks the other week for books and beer, but no reading, this could be the other half of the program. Next up will be an appearance on June 7 with three other Sugartown Publishing authors at The Octopus Literary Salon, 2101 Webster, Oakland.
