I'll be entering the Cloister tonight at 6 pm, happy to share a stage with poets Dianne Borsenik, Bill Hurley, Leonard Kress, Jackie Koch and Tom Barden. It's Toledo, so we will rock it. Also the new Prince poetry anthology Delirious from NightBallet Press will make its first public appearance at this event.
