I will be reading as a featured poet in the Artists’ Union Gallery’s annual Erotic Poetry Benefit. This reading celebrates the erotic in the broadest sense–works that evoke yearning, longing, and loss, as well as the more traditional praises of desire and tributes to the beloved. The reading will be held in conjunction with the gallery’s annual erotic art exhibit, and all proceeds go to benefit the gallery’s good works. The event starts on Saturday, Feb. 10th at 7:00 pm and there is a $10 donation at the door. The gallery is located at 330 South California Street in Ventura.
