(2) Glitches with the platform. For instance, why -- when all I wanted to do was update my "Coming Events" section in the right-hand column -- will the platform delete the old but not publish new changes?
So, sorry! I have a lot of photographs from last Saturday's "Leelanau UnCaged" street fair, which was a roaring success, but right now I'm focused on this coming Saturday, only two days away, and my first -- perhaps Northport's first -- bilingual poetry reading. Here are the details:
Saturday, Oct. 5, 2 p.m.
Art Mantecón & Mark Statman: Bilingual poetry reading original and translated works in both English and Spanish
The reading should be great fun, so don't miss it! Mark Statman comes to us all the way from New Orleans, and besides poetry his books include Listener in the Snow: The Practice and Teaching of Poetry, and The Alphabet of the Trees: A Guide to Nature Writing, so we will have something for everyone on Saturday. Your local bookseller will also be severely challenged, as she has been put on notice by the other poet's wife that Arturo (from Traverse City and California) does not like standard (i.e., boring) introductions. Oh, dear, what shall I say? Something else to worry about....

(There's also the way the spacing has gone all wonky in this post, but I don't have time to worry about that.)
