Editor Margaret Bashaar reading from Thirteen Designer Vaginas

This past Friday the ever-awesome Kris Collins of Low Ghost Press (another really wonderful press out of Pittsburgh) asked me to read as part of a collaborative event between Low Ghost Press and Six Gallery Press that brough Mark Spitzer to town. During my set, one of the poems I read was from Thirteen Designer Vaginas by Juliet Cook. Kevin Ross was kind enough to film my reading because he is just that awesome.

It was a great event - if you're in the Pittsburgh area during a reading that Kris is running definitely go check it out. He always puts together a great line-up.
