Launching The Alchemy of My Mortal Form with a Free Copy

65º ~ Arkansas has turned blustery for spring~here's hoping the warmer temps return in a hurry

Life has been about as crazy as it gets for April at the desk of the Kangaroo: National Poetry Month, AWP, the end of the spring semester grading, and the launch of The Alchemy of My Mortal Form. 

So much has happened, I can't begin to summarize it all. Suffice it to say that Trio House Press did a fine job of launching the book at AWP. I have to give super props to Tayve Neese, Dorinda Wegener, Issa Lewis, Sara Lefsyk, and Terry Lucas for knowing how to make a poet feel special. The book turned out to be as beautiful an object as I ever hoped it could be, and it received a warm welcome in Minneapolis. Wahoooooza.
