Sylvan lights

I'll be reading from Glimmerglass. Art by Clive Hicks-Jenkins.
Next event: reading and signing

City Lights Bookstore
Sylva, North Carolina
Saturday, November 1st
3:00 p.m.

I'll post some pictures of Norfolk and Athens events soon. But I'm having a good time and doing lots of hiking around the mountains and visiting in the Cullowhee area. I'm probably going to take a quick trip to Jonesborough, TN before I depart.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
