I'm very excited, even if they did spell my last name wrong on the bookstore website.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is a wonderful bookstore in Lansing called "Everybody Reads"
(http://becauseeverybodyreads.com). They have been hosting what they call "First Sunday Gallery Walk" since November or so. On each first Sunday of the month a different local performance artist will perform. Past performers include local singer, Barb Barton; poet Melissa Dey Hasbrook, who read from her chapbook "Blame it on Eve", poet Chey Davis, who read from her chapbook "Bad Dog Behavior" (along with guest poet, Silvana Rojas), Lisa Sayles, who read from "Year of the Phoenix" and from her new chapbook, "Nothing to Say" (and guest Poet, Lisa Sinnett), poet Deena Tyler, who read from several chapbooks, including her most recent "Ready for Me: Rough and Raw", painter, Gail Bohner, and quilter, Rina Risper.
