Reading from Havening. This includes a really sweet intro from my good friend Geetha S. Iyer, and about a ten-minute reading from my in-process creative nonfiction book project, Havening, at the Iowa State University MFA Thesis Festival 2013.
"Barack Obama," by Xavier Cavazos. My buddy and excellent poet Xavier Cavazos delivers a stunning performance of his poem on an early morning in Iowa State University's Jack Trice Stadium during our final year in the MFA program. Fellow MFAer Andrew Payton did the filming and video editing, and I did sound and made a little cameo at the end. Xav brought the goods.
