Looks like an awesome tour. I wish I were in NYC to see it.

Any chance you'll make it up to the Boston area?

Love to add a stop in Boston. Any series you would recommend, Andrew? I don't know the scene.

Congratulations, Aaron. Sounds awesome. Any video or audio forthcoming eventually from the readings?

I hope to have a video trailer for the book soon, and I will link to footage of the readings after they take place. Trust me--I'm not shy.

Congratulations, Aaron, it sounds great!

In Boston, if in doubt, you might reach out to the Grolier Poetry Bookshop in Harvard Square:

Grolier Poetry Book Shop Front Page
www.grolierpoetrybookshop.org/

I bought William McGonagall's Collected Poems there.

Cheers,
John

Sadly, I can't say I "know the scene" well either. I've never really given a reading, and haven't had the chance to go to many outside of a few places and college venues you probably have to book long in advance.

John's recommendation is a good one; I've been to a reading at Brookline Booksmith as well that was good. I have a friend who does readings about town, and I'll let you know when she gets back to me.

A consequence of having a "belle" as my wife (see posts # 9 & 10 here) and married daughters is that scheduling is hard to foresee. I am familiar with the most scarlet KGB venue (let's all sing about the Volga boatmen now), though not yet with the other uptown. I will hope for the best.

Any chance you're swinging by the sleepy market town of Leek in Staffordshire? If so, I'll definitely pencil it in, weather permitting. We don't really have a 'scene', though we do have scenery. And we don't have a poetry bookshop where people give readings, but we do have an Oxfam shop where people have been known to mumble in tongues.

Seriously though, good luck with it...

Thank you, John and Andrew S., I will check out the bookstores you suggest. Yes, Boston. It’s time. I have only read there once, I believe for the New England Poetry Society. I will scope out poetry venues and try to set something up for early 2018.

Allen, I would love to see you at the KGB. We could talk Sappho in any one of the four dark corners of the bar. It’s something about the wood in that room—it resonates well with my voice. I would love to meet your belle as well.

Mark, I would love to read in Leek. A quick search has revealed that it is on the charmingly named river Churnet near the mysterioso Blackshaw moor (where the “Hound of the Baskervilles” is set?). Yes, a European tour. I’ll see what I can do. Best,

Aaron
