It’s National Poetry Month!

This Thursday, I will be reading poems about beauty pageants, anger, fast food, and possibly unicorns…

…as part of two events in one day to help launch INDIVISIBLE, the first anthology of South Asian American poetry, which U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins has praised as “among the best anthologies of poetry.” More info:

Would love to see you!  And don’t forget to celebrate National Poetry Month:  write a poem, get a poetry book (like Indivisible), read a poem aloud to someone, buy a poet dinner, you know, stuff like that. 🙂
