My dear friend Karen Levine from the Long Island Writers House gets me the most interesting gigs.
Just a few months ago, she scored me a reading at Walt Whitman’s birthplace. But she contacted me last night and outdid that.
I’ll be reading Friday night at the Women in Words event at His & Hers Bar & Lounge, 259 Post Road, Westbury, N.Y. Sponsored by the Greater Westbury Council for the Arts to commemorate Women’s History Month, the “evening of celebration, inspiration and joy” is scheduled to run from 6-10 p.m.
I don’t know when I’m scheduled to read, or how strictly the five-minute-max rule will be enforced. But somewhere in there I’ll be reading from Mighty Mighty. I’ve selected the scene where Supermodel meets her spirit guide. How is a crowd who came to hear feminist poetry going to react? I don’t know, but this frat-boy-turned-funny-man plans on wearing a cup.
Anyway, hope to see you there!
