March 2nd at St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Hillsborough, North Carolina, I'll do my first full-length public reading performance. In preparation, this week on The Byrd Word I read extensively from 'You've Changed,' my new book of poetry from Mezcalita Press. You can purchase your own copy of 'You've Changed' at http://www.jonathanbyrd.com/the-store/youve-changed-1
I mention my friend and great poet Eva HD in this podcast. Here's a good place to read a few of her poems http://michaeldennispoet.blogspot.com/2015/07/rotten-perfect-mouth-eva-hd-mansfield.html and here's a good place to buy them https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1771260815/
I also mention my friend Corin Raymond, a musical poet and spoken word artist. For all things Corin, and there is a whole kingdom of beautiful things, https://corinraymond.com/
