On Sept 15th, I hosted a reading at The Raven in Lawrence, KS that featured Linzi Garcia, Anna Ciummo, Joan Koromante, and Victor Clevenger. This reading was the first featured reader event for Linzi and Anna. In addition, the reading was the first promotional event for Anna with her “Dreamflowers” book published by Asinimali Publications earlier this year.
Richard Robert Hansen, the editor of the Poems For All donated several copies of his project for this reading including “Tecumseh Whispers” by Dorie Renee Hogan. Denise Low, the former poet laureate of Kansas from 2007-2009 was gracious enough to be a surprise guest reader and read “Tecumseh Whispers” to start off the reading. Dorie’s family and friends were in the audience and this culmination of events helped make the entire reading unique.
