My First Poetry Reading

Post date: May 12, 2014 6:9:1 PM

It was on this date, May 12, in 1990 that I gave my first-ever poetry reading as a featured poet. The reading was sponsored by Robinson Jeffers Tor House Foundation and Monterey Peninsula College, and took place at Sunset Center in Monterey, California. I read haiku and senryu with Garry Gay, LeQuita Vance-Watkins, and the late Paul O. Williams. Read more about it (where I've also just added two photos from the event). A recording was made of the reading, but I never got a copy, and wish I had. I wonder what poems I read!
