I will be reading at Penn State Harrisburg on Thursday, February 13th, at 6 pm in the Oliver LaGrone Cultural Arts Center. Free copies of my books will be available for students of the university! And, if there are leftovers, some for the community as well.
I’ll be reading in Iowa City Friday, January 31st with Amanda Auerbach, who’ll be reading from her new book What Need Have We for Such as We. This reading will be a bit of a homecoming for me. The reading starts at 7pm, but I’ll be there earlier in the cafe, having a few beers to get my nerves up. Feel free to say hello before the reading. If you’re able, RSVP to the Facebook invite here.
I’ll be doing a mini-Midwest tour the third week in October with fellow Midwest poets Dan Denton, F. Daniel Rzicznek, and Cal Freeman. I will be reading for Kresge Arts in the Kresge Mansion in Detroit, MI on Monday, the 14th at 7pm. On Tuesday the 15th, I’ll be an hour and a half south, reading at the Art and Performance Center of West Toledo, Toledo, OH at 7pm. Please come out if you are in the area. And always feel free to reach out to me for more info.
I am happy to read any event I can reasonably get to, depending on how much time/money I have at the moment. If you are interested in setting up a reading, please reach out to me at matthew.mcbride[at]wilson.edu.
