    Hello Grace,
    I’m writing to invite you to be part of the Santa Barbara Poetry Series on April 14, 2012. This is a reading to honor poets who have published a book of poetry in the previous year. It would be terrific if you could lead off the reading as the winner of the Lettre Sauvage poetry competition. Fiona showed me your wonderful collection that she printed. (She has also printed a broadside and an accordian book for me.) Like you, I also organize poetry events (here). Plus…Grolier’s is my favorite bookstore. I used to hang out there when Gordon Cairnie was owner, and sat on his old brown leather couch, holding court. We’ll have to compare notes! Your website looks great!

    Best wishes,

    Carol DeCanio

    Carol, I would be so honored to come to the reading. I think that timing word work well.

    Fiona does such beautiful work. I feel so honored to have had a book published by her. I will email you directly in a few days as I am traveling right now. We can work out the details.

    Thank you for your comments. I look forward to reading your work also.


  6. Grace, sorry I missed your call at AWP! I finally heard the message. I should have thought it through…that my phone would mostly be off during panels & readings, and the rest of the time I wouldn’t be able to hear it! I will fondly think that at some point we were in the same room together or passed each other in the hall. I hope you had a wonderful time!
