I am starting to prepare for a very special poetry reading on August 31, 2012, for The Highwaymen NYC reading series. August 31 will mark the second full moon of August, making it a “blue moon.” The Highwaymen NYC series began this year with a poetry reading held at a different location on each full moon. In addition to the blue moon which will make it a special occasion, August 31 would have been my mother’s 68th birthday. I was honored to be invited to read poetry for this event by the lovely series curator & founder, Elizabeth, and I certainly feel privileged to have such a rare opportunity to honor my mother. I am planning to write new pieces for the event and I hope to write something that will bring her to life for the audience. Thank you, Elizabeth! More info on this will be posted when it’s available!
