American Sentences in PDX

Paul & Jim O’Halloran 12.5.15 Photo by Faiza Sultan

It will be my first reading in Portland in over ten years. Can’t remember the exact time and place of the last reading and it happens Friday, June 3 @7pm at Another Read Through in Portland, Oregon.

I’ll be reading with Jim O’Halloran, the world-class flute player and, in addition to his interpretations of American Sentences, we’ll have some other pieces to perform, some for the first time. A few copies of American Sentences will be available, as well as copies of Make It True: Poetry From Cascadia and my manuscript Pig War & Other Songs of Cascadia. I hope yo can join us.

Buy the book, $11.99.
