National Beat Poetry Festival this weekend in Connecticut

I'm thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to read on days two (9/1) and three (9/2) of this year's National Beat Poetry Festival at The Licia & Mason Beekley Community Library, 10 Central Avenue, New Hartford, Connecticut 06057. I wish I could attend the day one (8/31) festivities, too, but I'll be traveling.

We will also celebrate the release of BEAT-itude: National Beat Poetry Festival 10 Year Anthology from Local Gems Press this weekend. I'm happy to be one of many writers included in that.

Just some of the featured poets on the days I'll be there (besides me) include William F DeVault, Lori Desrosiers, George Wallace, Marci Payne, Chris Vannoy, Jael Uribe, Chryssa Velissariou, James Paul Wagner, Carlo Parcelli, Daniel McTaggart, Viviana Duncan, Ngoma Hill, Paul Richmond, Annie Petrie, Ernel Grant, Krysia Jopek, Sandra Feen, Jessica Brooke, Rayn Roberts, Richard Wayne Horton, Prince A McNally, Elizabeth Fontaine, John Landry, Tchalla Williams, Derick Windrick (The Cosmic Poet), Bengt O Björklund, Barry Graham, Larry Jaffe and Evelyn Augusto. Plus, we'll be treated to featured music by Tony Vacca and Donna Gentile. Debbie Tosun Kilday and Colin Haskins will be our hosts.
