I am honored to be reading my poetry this evening at the Newtown Bookshop (in Newtown, PA) on Thursday September 12th at 6:30 p.m. This will be my first poetry reading, since I usually do children’s readings at the elementary schools.
I will be reading selections from both of my award-winning poetry books, A Penny for Your Thoughts and also A Dime is a Sign – and maybe sneak in a selection from one of the children’s books since they are all in rhyme!!
I’m finding it difficult to choose which to include, so I decided to see which had been chosen as favorites in all the lovely reviews I have received, and have selected the most popular. (If anyone cares to offer a suggestion, please let me know before Thursday!)
Here is a brief Summary and List of Poetry Awards:
Winner of 12 Awards: A Penny for Your Thoughts– Have you ever loved, been loved, been confused about love, or suffered from loss of love?
