I read in Eugene at the Tsunami Books on Saturday April 20th along with John Burgess, Ralph Salisbury, and Howard Robertson. Steven Schreiner has been recording readers at Tsunami Books for awhile now and has posted videos of a number of Pacific Northwest writers including Lana Hechtman Ayers, Paul Hunter and John Witte. I last read at Tsunami Books in 2003 from my second book Misplaced Alice. I was reading this time from my seventh book, Virility Rituals of North American Teenage Boys. I read a story, The Penile Colony, that originally appeared in The Roethke Reader, a collection of work by writers who write various pieces that were Roethke related when ACT Theater performed David Wagoner’s play First Class.
