I enjoy giving readings and talks at book stores, conventions, churches, poetry festivals, and high schools across the country and abroad.  I’ve hosted a television special about poetry in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and am frequently interviewed and/or do readings on the radio.  I also lead workshops about writing poetry and memoir.   Click on SCHEDULE (above) for a list of readings and talks.

If you’d like me to work with your group, email me at to discuss an honorarium.  It will vary, depending on travel distance and the length of time you arrange for.

Please plan to order books for the event:

Helping the Morning:  New and Selected Poems New Tracks, Night Falling

A Deed to the Light

The Geography of Memory:  A Pilgrimage through Alzheimer’s
