I am also reading. I am Robert J. Baumann and I think I will be reading from a chapbook called Robert J. Baumann's A Man About Town. Anne Boyer is putting it together. It has become a custom to use the person's name as a possessive adjective referring to the title but also as part of the title, so I did that. It felt clever at first but that has worn off. My favorite thing that I have done on the internets was with other people on this blog called "Willow Ufgood". I have some poems on-line, too. This "bio" felt less shameful to write in first person, but I still had serious "second thoughts" about putting my name in bold in that first line.
