Yes, it was recorded.

This is brave, daring, wonderful work -- it sneaks up on you - emotionally wrenching
some of the work brought tears to my eyes. He explores new ground and brings us along
in this revelatory exploration.

Congratulations on your reading, Vince. It was beautifully written material,  a gorgeous and inventive balance between speculative, historical and literary work. Loved that 'encore' poem especially. No denying one's nature in the end.

Vince: I couldn't attend yesterday because of another event, but I just watched the recording on FB and loved it. You read wonderfully and I love how you tell a story as engaging as fiction--I'm looking forward to the full novel-as-poetry when released!

Akua: blessings to you for all the work you're doing to expose the world to Spec Poetry!

Vince: Since my mother's death I won't have time to attend any events for awhile. Her memorial is on Sunday, so I could probably do things after that, but let's just say the month is a complete wash for me. I hope your reading went well! I'm sure it did.
