This week I journey to Lewisburg, WV for the  Appalachian Mountain Advocates Nov. 17the Boom Boom fundraiser.

I love Lewisburg. Its one of the coolest small towns in America.  Really. It is.

I’m honored that my poem, “Boom Boom,” inspired the title of the fundraising event. That’s pretty cool.

I’ll be accompanied by the Black Twig Pickers (  and I am looking forward to getting a little mountain boogie on.

They say there will be regional autumn appetizers, along with beer, wine and fresh-pressed cider. 

Boom Boom!
