I will be at the event thanks to the thoughtfulness of playwright-poet Maurice DeCaul, who recommended me to the Heyman Center, along with the military veteran and poet Jenny Pacanowksi. Our work will be read by members of the Bedlam Outreach community, which is natural enough since Jenny and I work pretty frequently with that community.
Here is the information for the event, as copied from the Heyman Center's website:
