Wild and Wonderful Events in September

Pretend the World continues to be blessed with wonderful press, including Susannah Schouweller's review on the Knight Foundation website, which you can find in the Read area here.

The Pretend the World art exhibit is up through the month at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts. It is open daily from 11:00-4:00 p.m. at 6666 East River Road in Fridley, Minnesota.

Here is a quick listing of all of the September Pretend the World events:

On September 11th, I will be discussing the collaboration process with several Pretend the World artists at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m.

On Wednesday, September 14th at Birch Bark Books in Minneapolis, I have the honor of reading with Denise Low, President of AWP and ex-Poet Laureate of Kansas, who is the author of over twenty books. She will be reading from her new book Ghost Stories of the New West. A delicious and optional dinner will be served at 6:00 at the Kenwood Cafe; the reading starts at 7:00.

On Sunday, September 18 at Magers and Quinn in Minneapolis, I will be reading with Jim Moore, whose new book Invisible Strings is receiving national attention. The reading is at 4:00 p.m.

On Saturday, September 24th, I'll be reading at 5:00 p.m. at Drury Lane books in Grand Marais on the shores of Lake Superior.

And on Friday, September 30th, we will celebrate the closing of the Pretend the World art exhibit with a reading at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. The program will include videos by Jes Lee, music by jazz clarinetist Sean Egan, and an original song by Chinese composer He Shuman to be sung by Kris Bigalk.

Hope to see you at one of these events.
