I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We had a good one. It didn’t go exactly as we had originally planned — we had unexpected houseguests at the last minute — but we had a fantastic holiday and really excellent weekend. I especially enjoyed hanging out with old friends who no longer live here but were visiting for a few days. Now it is time to get ready for work and school tomorrow, to put up our Christmas decorations, to get back to normal for a few weeks till the next major Series of Holiday Events. (I genuinely love this time of year.)
In the midst of it all, for those of you in the Houston area this coming weekend, here’s something you might enjoy doing Friday evening. There’s going to be a book launch for the new Mutabilis Press anthology, entitled Improbable Worlds, and one of my poems is going to be in it. (Yay!) The poem is called “Recipe for My Daughter.” I hope you’ll join me at the launch! Here are the details:
Friday, December 2nd; 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.; The Jung Center of Houston; 5200 Montrose
And here’s the website for Mutabilis Press:
MP’s website also has information for purchasing the anthology, in case you’re interested. (I was also published in their 2005 anthology Timeslice, in case anyone wants a copy of that as well. It had a lot of really fantastic Houston poets in it, and I was thrilled and humbled to be counted among them. Improbable Worlds will be featuring poets of Texas and Louisiana, if I’m not mistaken.)
If the book launch for Timeslice is any indication, I and many of the other poets featured in the book will be signing copies the night of the event. (I’m also happy to sign any copies other than that night, if you’d like.) I hope to see you there!
