Are you on vacation? Are you in Iowa? Want to make your vacation a bit more spectacular than it already must be (you are in Iowa, after all)? Then do I have the opportunity for you!

I'm having a sort of official release party for my book, Michigander, in Cedar Falls on July 31st. want more? Then how about poetry readings by Aaron McNally, Jonathan Barrett and B.J. Love. This gonna be the realest shit you ever seen, son! You remember that time The Beastie Boys sampled Slick Rick and then everybody did? This reading is like that...only with poetry, "as we go a little something like this, hit it!" You should get on this train early because it's the ride you don't want to miss.

Hype, hype, hype!
