Molly Peacock Reading at Broward College on Monday, April 20

If you live in the South Florida area, or if you'll be travelling here, you'll want to know about this Molly Peacock reading at Broward College (formerly Broward Community College), the South campus, this Monday, April 20. Broward College is easy to find: take Hollywood Boulevard going west, after you exit from I 95 (don't panic when Hollywood Boulevard turns to Pines Boulevard at Highway 441--just keep going west); in about 7 miles, you'll see the campus on your left. There's plenty of parking, and a great venue.

The reading starts at 7:30 p.m., and will be held in Building 68, the Southern Breeze Dining Room. The official address so that you can Google or Mapquest: 7200 Pines Boulevard, Pembroke Pines, Florida.

I saw Marilyn Nelson read at Broward College last month, and I was greatly impressed: a great poet, an appreciative audience (including my students, who might have enjoyed that field trip more than anything else we did in our poetry class), a beautiful venue, books to buy, food to eat. I look forward to this reading. I'm feeling a bit sad, too, because this may be the last reading, unless organizers can find another funding source.
