First off, we had a great night at the Monson, MA Public Library. I was on a great panel of authors: Host T. Stephens, Vlad V., Steve Hobbs, B. B. Boudreau, Slam Poet Joseph Mosby, and his cousin Arthur Strategos Williams.
And a bit of audience participation. Our host discovered there were poets in the audience (including J.H. Curry), and he pulled them up to tell us about themselves.
Many thanks to Hope Bodwell, the Library Director, for setting up a great night of meeting readers. Great snacks, and we even got gift bags! A first from all the library events we've done.

Joseph Mosby, Slam Poet. This young man is going places- he performs with power and passion
Joseph's cousin, Arthur Strategos Williams. He has a great talent for spoken word poetry
And B. B. Boudreau, hamming it up. Funny thing is, I see that bust in a lot of libraries.
