Reading Neato Speedo

On Wednesday, March 13, I will be reading read selections from my book, Neato Speedo: 100 Poems of Summer, at Food for Thought Books in Amherst as part of their event Open: The Voice of the People. (UPDATE:  Things went quite well!  I even got a chance to read a couple extra “Souvenir” poems as we waited for the last poet to arrive.)

Wayne Gagnon - Neato Speedo: 100 Poems of Summer

Neato Speedo is a somewhat of a journal (in verse) of the Summer of 2012. The short, whimsical poems in the book are based on the people I’ve met, places I’ve been and things I’ve done.
