In a few days I will fly to Chicago to enjoy a two week residency at Ragdale Artist Residency in Lake Forest. The town, thirty miles north of the city, is where I was born and lived until I turned twenty-one. California has been my residence since the sixties, and my last visit there was in about 1975, so this is a journey to my youth and childhood, as well as a time to work on my poetry.

I’m giving a talk at a bookstore in Chicago and reading from my book, UNTOLD. Here is the flyer. Will share my adventures here over the next few weeks.
