Warmest thanks to Fran Sanders at Public Poetry, U.S. Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky, the ARTlines project and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, as well as my fellow poets and the judge for my category, Roberto Tejada. I am so very proud to have my work recognized in this beautiful book.
The cover has been nominated for a design award. (The MFAH store reportedly sold out in 48 hours. However, copies should be available very soon on Amazon.)
Thank you to fellow poet, Stacy Nigliazzo ("Scissored Moon") for all of her support...and for taking photos at the book signing.
The signing table at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, set up in front of their Morris Louis color field painting (from his "Veils" series). This painting is absolutely stunning and must be seen in person to fully appreciate its beauty.
The calm before the storm:
