I was honored to read 3 poems from Fierce Aria as part of the What a Relief! virtual festival this past weekend. I chose three poems that I did NOT read at the book party, so if you want to tune in, these will be new to you!
Organized by the Nevada County Arts Council, What a Relief! benefits local artists who are struggling with loss of income during this pandemic.
The festival features an amazing array of talent in many, many media and genres. It starts off with Shelly Covert, spokesperson for the local Nisenan tribe, followed by our own world-renowned composer/pianist Terry Riley. I come on somewhere around 1:05:00.

And, if you are able, please consider making a donation to keep local arts alive here at the Nevada County Artist Relief Fund. Many artists have lost all or significant portions of their income for these past many months. https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/artist-relief
