A Reading

Hemingway's Reading

Since I began reading again, after a 20 plus year layoff, a number of folks not local to Pittsburgh - old friends, poetry folks, casual acquaintances - have expressed an interest in hearing me read my work live. The only previous  recordings are an anonymous round robin reading on the radio last fall on WRCT, via Speed & Briscoe Press, and a reading from Hemingway's way back in 1987, before I found my medium and voice, if you will.

Until now.

The above Hemingway's reading link is an mp3 of a brief reading - about 7 minutes total - I did at Hemingway's Bar here in Pittsburgh back on July 26th. So, for those uninterested, please pardon the indulgence. For all others, hope you enjoy.

Thanks again to Joan and Jimmy for the invite, and Joan's friend Don for the fine recording.

Excellent! I really enjoyed hearing that, and glad you read some of my favorites from Past all traps.
