Reading in Chicago at Bookends & Beginnings (Evanston), June 24th

Chicago-area friends, I'll be in your neck of the woods June 24th, and I'll be reading at the fabulous Bookends & Beginnings in Evanston. This is THE store leading a class-action lawsuit against Amazon on behalf of independent booksellers everywhere, so I'm proud to read in their space. 

I will be joined by RHINO editors Meghan Malachi and Elizabeth O'Connell-Thompson. 

Meghan Malachi is a Black Puerto Rican poet from the South Bronx, first-place winner of the Spoon River Poetry Review 2022 Editor's Prize Contest and a 2022 Pushcart Prize Nominee. Her work is published or forthcoming in Milly Magazine, Rabid Oak, NECTAR Poetry, Pages Penned in Pandemic, giallo lit, and Writers With Attitude. Her first chapbook, The Autodidact, was published by Ethel Zine and Micro Press. 

Elizabeth O’Connell-Thompson is the author of the chapbook Honorable Mention (dancing girl press, 2017), and holds an MA in English Studies from Trinity College Dublin. Her work has been published in Banshee, Entropy, Iron Horse Literary Review, and Poetry Ireland Review, among others. She cohosts the RHINO Reads series with Naoko Fujimoto.

I hope to see you there!
