The Los Angeles Review of Books depicts “White Nights in Split Town City” as “the story of what it means to feel desired and plugged into what surrounds us, and how this informs our identities from a very young age.” The book was released by Tyrant Books in August 2016.

The New Yorker describes “I Actually Wore This” as “Funny and surprisingly touching, revealing much about our moments of bold, optimistic self-assertion and their aftermath.” The book was released by Rizzoli in March 2017.

Both books are available at Roxbury General along with a vast array of merchandise from clothing and ceramics to sweets and holiday decorations.

Raining Poetry in Roxbury 2017

Writers in the Mountains (WIM) will present Raining Poetry in Roxbury 2017, a public street art project, on the sidewalks of Roxbury on Saturday, July 1, during Celebrate Roxbury Summer Festival. Twenty poems written by local poets will be stenciled on sidewalks using a biodegradable water-repellent spray visible only when wet. This fun and unexpected installation will provide watering cans for visitors to ‘reveal’ the hidden poems.  Join us! Water the streets and read the poems!

An open-air reception will follow later in the afternoon (starting at 3:00 pm in front of Roxbury General, 53587 Main Street). Participating poets will read their works and answer questions from the audience. 

Raining Poetry in Roxbury 2017sponsored by Writers in the Mountains, is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) Decentralization Grant Program, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and is administered in Delaware County by the Roxbury Arts Group (RAG).
