Best Books of Indiana 2011: Finalist. Judges' Citation: "Poetry from Paradise Valley is an excellent anthology that features world-class poetry, including the work of many artists from the Midwest, such as Jared Carter, Annie Finch, David Baker, and Allison Joseph. It’s an eclectic and always interesting collection where poems on similar themes flow into each other. It showcases the highest caliber of U. S. poetry."

Poetry & Publishing Presentation: Mon. April 19, 7 p.m.

Readers and writers of poetry who reside in the nearby region are invited to a poetry reading I will be giving Monday evening at 7 p.m. in the South Haven Public Library, a branch of the Porter County Public Library System in Northwest Indiana. In addition, I will be discussing the process of poetry publication and my role as editor of Valparaiso Poetry Review, as well as answering questions about the place of literature in print and electronic media.

The event is free and open to the public. Following the reading, two of my books—Seeded Light and Tidal Air—will be available for purchase and signing. Pre-registration is not necessary for this presentation, and I look forward to meeting anyone able to attend. The address for the South Haven Public Library is 403 W 700 N, Valparaiso IN, 46385, and the phone number for further information is (219) 759-4474.
