King's Books, Thurs @ 7pm
I'm privileged to note that tomorrow I'll be joining two very talented gentlemen at King's Books for a night of oral reading and slideshow-ery.
KPLU and Tacoma's own Dick Stein (above, left) will read his amazing poem The Tacomiad in a style I'm sure will dazzle even the worst listeners among us. From there I'll walk the audience through The Up's & Down's of Recent Tacoma which will feature photography of some of the shining and not-so-glorious events I've been privy to in my 10 years in the area. John Carlton (above, right) will wrap up the evening as he reads excerpts from the Murray Morgan book Puget's Sound and from future yet-to-be-published editions by Morgan's ghost writer.
Stop by King's Books at 7pm tomorrow to take in yet another great (did I mention free?) facet of this year's Art at Work Month. Hope to see you there!

|Youâ€™ve been here a decade!?! Oh yeah; thatâ€™s just 1998. :-) Congratulations on being 1/3 of this great program, Kevin. KPLU has so much knowledge and talent, but Dick Stein is so funny, witty, and more than slightly twisted. I hope I donâ€™t forget about this event by tomorrow. It will be good.|

|Really nice evening. Stein fans weren't disappointed, and that was a nice selection of photos and events, Kevin. In Tacoma, "Ups and Downs" seems to be universally appropriate, and mixing your take with that of the audence was fun. There were some interesting connections out there, and some neat Tacoma knowledge and experiences shared. Carlton's narration really helped put everything in long-term perspective.|

|I wish I could have been there! Any chance someone captured it for YouTube?|

|Tossed up audio of the readings and my slideshow. Here 'tis:
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
