I am thrilled that my second book of poems, Thousand Star Hotel (Coffee House Press) and my first children’s book, A Different Pond (illustrated by Thi Bui; Capstone Young Readers) will be released this summer! For folks in Minnesota, the official release reading of Thousand Star Hotel will take place at the Loft on Wednesday, July 12, 7 pm, 2017. The official release of A Different Pond will take place at the Red Balloon on Tuesday, August 8, 6:30 pm, 2017.

I’ve also launched my first ever Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to tour Thousand Star Hotel! Please take a look, you can read more about the campaign as well as the book here:
