Oh, to be in New Jersey, now that verse is here....
If you weren't in Hoboken last weekend, you missed Deborah Ager's visit, and hearing her read from Midnight Voices. Deborah and her family braved both sides of the Hudson and got to spend some quality time at the Hoboken Italian Festival (zeppoles in lieu of payment? I'll bite).
Thanks, Deborah for the visit! I hope the southbound traffic treated you well on the way home (but I know it probably didn't...)
My oh my, if you have already made plans for this Sunday, you need to cancel them now and get your DVR ready to save the end of the Jets' 23-13 victory for you. That's right. I said it.
Here are three events that should ought to give the NFL a run for its TV money. Unfortunately, they're all happening at the same time!
First, in Red Bank, you have Peter Murphy and Chris McIntyre reading at Dublin House.
If that's too far south for you, stop in to see Nancy Scott and BJ Ward at Poets in the Garden in Morristown.
And finally, if you have an aversion to BOTH the Parkway and 287, join Diane Lockward for a Poetry Party on the theme "When Arts Collide" at the Huddle Inn.
And NEXT weekend, we have the Warren County Poetry Festival! More on that as it approaches. I need to focus on Sunday!
