Chapbook Party!

4 Comments

On Friday, June 26th, I had the launch party for my chapbook, My Mother’s Child. Thanks to my tango-friend Mariana, I was able to have the party at Terra Nova Global Properties new office in downtown Durham. And my friend Janet provided the food, decorations, prosecco, and the real champagne glasses.

After a fabulous introduction by fellow Living Poetry organizer, Bartholomew Barker, I read a four poems from the chapbook and a few others I had written over the last two years. Many in the crowd had followed my April and November poem-a-day challenges and a few had never heard me read before. I’m so thankful to everyone who came out to support me and buy books.

  1. Awesome! Congratulations!!!

  2. Wow! Congrats!!! It looks like I need to keep better track as well. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Are you reading and selling chapbooks in the triangle anytime soon? I’ll be in NC for another month or so and would love to hear your work again and get a signed chap!
