Pandemic Update

After a successful run of This Far Book Launch Readings in late 2019, the Covid19 Emergency forced the Cancellation of In Person Readings.

Undeterred, Kathleen has been sharing her poetry on Zoom with small groups of poetry lovers, retreat attendees & book clubs. If you are interested in having her bring poetry into an on line conversation, or want to include poetry in a regular or seasonal gathering, visit the contact page, and send Kathleen a request via e-mail.

Meanwhile, watch this space for a schedule of on-line readings, and links to videos of Kathleen’s virtual poetry appearances while we all hope for the chance to gather for poetry “Soon and Very Soon”…..
