The festivities begin.
Our visit with A. Van Jordan started today. The ballroom was super dark, so it was hard to take pics, but I promise better ones tomorrow (he's visiting my MFA poetry workshop to hang out and talk about poetry). I could listen to Van forever. He has one of those voices. It's so nice hearing someone other than myself talking about poetry, especially when we talk about the same things in different ways.
The ultra-helpful Eric Wasserman.
Getting ready to introduce Van.
Van reads! I'm so glad he read stuff from MACNOLIA, since it's set in Akron.
