Watermark Gallery Reading This Sunday

Just a reminder: this Sunday at 2 p.m. is the “Rumi-esque Reading” event. I’ll be reading from my new novel, Womb, and will be joined by two other fiction writers and two poets. In addition to literature and readings from Rumi’s work, there will be artwork, music, and refreshments.

You’re invited!

Below is information directly from a recent advertisement on the event.

A Rumi-esque Reading:

Celebrating 800 years of Rumi


The Watermark Gallery in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Sunday, October 21 at 2 p.m.

Hightlights include:

· Readings from Rumi’s work

· Original, Rumi-inspired work from poets
Deanna Nikaido and Cliff Lynn.

Original, Rumi-esque fiction from three local authors:

· Womb by Eric D. Goodman

· “She Walks in Beauty” by Caryn Coyle

· "Lines: A Portrait Contemplates Its Audience" and
"Fragments from a Backyard Melodrama.” by Nitin Jagdish

Also for your enjoyment:

· “Diverse Expressions,” surreal artwork by Manzar

· Live, Rumi-inspired music

· Wine and refreshments

The Watermark Gallery is located in the Bank of America Center Skywalk Level, right across from the Inner Harbor, at 100 S. Charles Street, Baltimore, Maryland. The phone number is (410) 547-0452.

The event is free and open to the public.

And, if the event leaves you hungry for more, don’t forget that on Monday night, a number of Maryland writers — myself included — will share our work aloud at the new Ukazoo Books in Towson.

So sorry I missed this event! Are any of these books available at local bookstores? I happened to get an e-mail about this event from a completely unrelated listserv so it was a surprise. Is there some sort of e-mail list i can join to be notified of similar events in the future? Thanx!
