From the Vault

In 2004, I was invited to read at the SAIC Ballroom for the Poetry Center of Chicago after winning their Juried Reading Contest the spring before.  It was possibly the biggest crowd I had read to, and I arrived holding my little hand assembled copies of Bloody Mary and was dumbfounded when people not only bought them, but wanted me to sign them. It was one of my first moments of feeling really like an author. I recently stumbled across a recording of that reading, which includes mostly poems that were eventually included in the fever almanac.
