November 24, 2019, Carolyn M. Gourdine hosted an amazing event I was so proud to be a part of the Leading By Mission Pop-Up Shop, and read my poetry along with other poets, comedians, musicians, and deejays.

I read two poems and have them uploaded on You Tube, on my Be YOUnique station. Note, I don’t have children, so not sure how “family friendly” they are since I casually mention “sex” and a “no bra day.” So for 18+ only!

“All About Eve”

“Never a Dull Day”

70RetroClock_mainTomorrow night, Monday, Aug. 4, 6:30 p.m. I’ll be presenting my lecture “Going, Going, Gone! What the Next Generation Won’t Remember” at Sayreville Public Library, Sayreville, New Jersey.

I love that they gave me such an awesome write-up on their website, as well as advertised in the Star Ledger! Kudos to Sayreville Public Library — a class act!
