Baltimore - No Tell Books Northeastern Reading Tour

The release party video is going to take a while to go through and edit -- so let's start with Baltimore at the i.e. reading series held at Clayton's & Co. Fine Books. Great space, great series. I'm President of the Michael Ball fan club. Bruce and PF just joined.

We had a wonderful, attentive audience.

Also, what's nice about this venue is the owners do often buy books from the readers. Something you might not know -- a lot of independent poetry on independent bookstore shelves is there on consignment. Especially books by brand new, unknown presses. Everybody's tight and buying poetry is a risky financial investment. So when a store actually pays for the books, I'm going make a big deal about it because it is a very big deal. * * * Go buy poetry books at Clayton & Co. Fine Books at 317 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. * * *

Only took two pictures because I temporarily lost my camera -- it was underneath my bag. I was freaking out the entire reading.

Was able to snap a picture of one of the lingering audience members, Michael Quattrone, a contributor in the upcoming Bedside Guide to No Tell Motel - 2nd Floor.

PF, Bruce, Michael Ball and Reb.
