BOOK SOUP READING

Los Angeles, CA 90069
I'm doing a reading with poet and author JANET HAMILL, whose new book, TALES FROM THE ETERNAL CAFE is a must-read for those who long for the sublime in storytelling. You can read reviews HERE, but please support our local bookstores by purchasing copies at the reading, where the author will personally inscribe your copy. The book knocked me out and left me wanting more. To discover a few things about Janet, click HERE.
I'll be reading from the book I published for my Kickstarter donors, PETER & THE WOLVES; an excerpt about my introduction to NYC with Peter Laughner and Lester Bangs as my guides.
Janet will be signing copies of her Tales. I'll have a few hardback, numbered copies of mine, too. If you're in L.A. on that Thursday eve, please come by and join us. It's going to be a magical night.
What takes your breath away?
What is worthy of your reverence?
Do you believe in only that which hard science can prove?
Do you believe in the soft mystery that is God?
Do words lose or gain all meaning in the mouths of fools and mystics?
Do you dance?
Which if any secrets are worth keeping and which will kill you?
Are you proud of your snark? Who laughs in your pause?
What part of you is not being fed and why are you starving it?
If life were to perish tomorrow, what action would you regret
never having taken?
Do you curate your life according to the measure of other's opinions?
What is divinity? Is it a candy? A ghost? A starling?
What are you working toward?
What is worth fighting for?
