Deborah M. Priestly of the "Out of the Blue Art Gallery" fame got a wonderful review of her book "The Woman Has A Voice" in this month's "Small Press Review" She will be reading in the "Grolier Poetry Series" in April with other Ibbetson Street Poets.

I have been asked by Diana Der-Hovanessian, the president of the New England Poetry Club to read with Frannie Lindsay and Liz McKim at Harvard April 9th. I will be reading from my book "Dreams at the Au Bon Pain."

At "Finagle-A-Bagel" in Harvard Square ( in the basement) at 9am most Saturdays, poets will (hopefully) be gathering, chatting, networking, and eating in a group called "Breaking Bagels With The Bards," founded by Harris Gardner and Doug Holder. It is just an informal gathering, stay as long as you like, or as little, we hope that it will have a life of its own. Feb 12 is the kick-off.

Ibbetson 16 was a "Pick of the Month" in the most recent issue of the Small Press Review.

I am told by writer, poet and journalist Susie Davidson that her Holocaust book "I Refused to Die" which consists of oral testimony of Boston-area Holocaust survivors, should be out in April.
