I’m looking forward to my reading-or-whatever at IONA this Sunday at 2 pm in Sewanee. Whatever the weather, the outcome will be a lovely fall afternoon among friends new and old.
Host and artist Ed Carlos invited me to share song lyrics as part of “An Autumn Assembly of Authors: Poets, Short Story Writers, Novelists, and
Essayists”. I’ll accompany myself on acoustic guitar (and maybe also a Jimi Inc. recording or two) (and also I might have props), and also read from personal essays. I’ll be appearing after my friends and neighbors April Alvarez and Buck Gorrell.
I’m feeling un-ironically kumbaya, excited about the prospect of drinking wine in the afternoon, and hoping it’s cool enough to wear leg-warmers.
