The performance, billed as “Literary Soulmates,” was captured in a four-part video, and I have included the links below.
Patricia, one of our finest poets, is a National Book Award finalist and winner of the National Poetry Series, Rattle and Pushcart prizes. She read from her next book, Shoulda been Jimi Savannah, which will be published in June. I read from my Edgar and Macavity Award-winning first crime novel, Rogue Island, and from my third novel, a work in progress tentatively titled Providence Rag.
In the first three installments of the video, we take turns reading from our work. In the fourth and final part, we discuss what it is like to work together as partners, editing one another’s writing, and answer questions from the audience.
