Poet Laureate Reception Jan. 17 Wed.

My good friends at the Lawrence Arts Center, and especially the Imagination & Place Committee there, are hosting a reception to celebrate the Poet Laureate position and my selection for it, starting July 1, 2007. Tom Averill, who nominated me, will speak, as well as Caryn Mirriam Goldberg, Director Ann Evans, and Thomas Pecore Weso (my husband). All are welcome, and I appreciate this kind attention. This was previously scheduled for last fall but got snowed out. Some friends have asked when this would be rescheduled, and they have asked if I would read a bit, so that will be part of the events. I promise not to ramble on. And the food is always good at these events! Denise
