I will get you your three poems that I owe you from April. Not today, though.
I did want to take a moment and mention the reading in which I participated on Sunday at Flyleaf Books over in Chapel Hill. What a great space and a friendly staff! And what fun (and an honor) for me to be able to be a stand-in and read the part of The Reporter in the staging of Pat Riviere-Seel’s The Serial Killer’s Daughter. This chapbook is the recipient of the Roanoke-Chowan Award for Poetry from the North Carolina Literary and Historical Association.
I was intrigued by this work since I am currently working on an historical novel. Pat’s chapbook could be described as historical poetry; it is a work of the imagination that has its roots in a true event. I invite you to visit Pat’s website for more information.
Anyway, my fellow cast members consisted of Pat herself, who played the part of Velma Barfield (the serial killer), Terri Wolfe, who played The Daughter, and Richard Allen Taylor who played multiple male voice roles.
North Carolina residents: If you have an opportunity to see this production (and there are more such readings planned), do go. You won’t be sorry.
