If you can't make either, buy online!

In an act of shameless self-promotion, my chapbook, "What a Lark!" is available with an order, for a discount. Yeep!

Magazine are sold throughout downtown New York, some outerboroughs, and I guess now the midwest, so there will be two release parties this spring.
