Yowza! That's a lot of things!

So far, I've got a poetry reading on March 22nd at 7 p.m. at the Daily Grind in Mount Holly, NJ, and a poetry reading on Memorial Day weekend on the boardwalk in Belmar, NJ (exact time and date TBD).

Wow, you surely do keep busy, Jon! My very first "official" writerly event is coming up on April 13; I've been invited to read one of my poems at the Village bookstore in Pleasantville, NY. My sister and I attended the regional Scholastic writing awards, too, on March 5. We were there as judges, along with some fellow librarians, teachers, writers, etc.
