Tonight I'm going to hear Olena Kalytiak Davis & Kary Wayson read in Seattle. There will be photos and details to follow.
I've mentioned Kary's book, American Husband (OSU JOURNAL AWARD POETRY), as a favorite of mine. My biggest critique of the book is that it is too short. I think it's only 48 pages, something like that. But I just love her writing!
Olena's first book is my favorite. Mine is completely dented and folded. It is worn because I love it. It's called And Her Soul Out Of Nothing (Brittingham Prize in Poetry)
I didn't like her Shattered Sonnets book as much. But she is still one of my favorite poets. I'll be buying her chapbook tonight.
So off to Seattle early to meet for dinner with a few of my favorite friends, then the reading and a ferry ride home. I'm looking forward to this.
