I’m the Featured Poet at Molly Malone’s Next Week and Oh My God It’s in the Suburbs …

Molly Malone’sThose who know me know it takes a lot to get me to venture into the uncharted here-be-dragons-ness that is the “-land” part of Chicagoland.

But this coming Monday night, June 11, Nina Corwin and Al DeGenova have done me the immense honor of booking me as the featured poet for their highly regarded poetry and fiction night at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub, in Forest Park.

Which Google Maps tells me is just a wee scooch of a jaunt past Oak Park along this thick yellow line that apparently has something to do with President Eisenhower.

I’ll be reading some poems, and/or some fiction. Which will be, you know, by me. The odds that I’ll be reading at least a few things from my book What the Sea Means are fairly high.

And there’s an open mike, so bring something of your own to read if you want to.

Here are the specs, courtesy of Nina and Al:

… I almost checked the “Travel” category box for this post, but I guess that might be overreacting a little.
